Episode 12 - Why Kitchen Technology Matters

English food writer Bee Wilson traces the genealogy of kitchen utensils and how they shape our lives-- from vegetable peelers to paleo lithic knives, chopsticks and even the mortar and pestle. She begs the question: why shouldn’t we consider kitchen tools to be just as important as military or industrial technology? "We think technology means cannons or, I don't know, guns-- and we forget it could be a pot or a pan or even a wooden spoon." -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause. Music in this episode was byAva Glendinning,Uuriter, Abing, and theAdvent Chamber Orchestra.

Episode 11 - Family, Freezing and Fermenting in the Arctic

Arctic culinary scholar Zona Spray Starks explains the diverse range culinary techniques of the Iñupiat people of Alaska, and how the seasonal food landscape shaped family relations. While doing so, she shares the story of her later-in-life return to Alaska and the connections she's built there. "Frozen is a way of altering food and cooking is a way of altering food, but freezing does the same thing.…And in fact the taste is very different when the meat is almost thawed, it's still a little bit Frozen, but it's almost thawed." -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause. Music in this episode was byAva Glendinning,Uuriter andHit of the Week Orchestra.

Episode 11 - Family, Freezing and Fermenting in the Arctic

Episode 10 - Acorns and Civilized Panic

What do famine foods throughout history tell us about the world in which they were eaten? Medieval food and magic scholar Andrea Maraschi makes a mythical and historical foray into the history of the lowliest yet most versatile famine food in Europe, the acorn. "In times of hardships we need to keep trusting that things are going to get better. We need to keep thinking that yes we are still ourselves we are still who we used to be yesterday and the day before. The easiest way to do so is keeping doing the things that we used to do." -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause. Music in this episode was byAva Glendinning,Uuriter, Lina Palera, Seikilos Epitaph, Mid Air Machine and Kevin Macleod.
