Keelin • Mentally? A Magpie. Jun 21, 2023

"This lush podcast stands out in its simplicity. Its audio is crisp and rich as the host, Natasha Miller...we are taken along these leisurely paths of food and humanity. Natasha Miller is a gentle hand on the rudder of conversation, keeping everyone on track, but letting the picture be drawn and colored by the interviewee. This podcast gives you that peace, and the chance to make listening to it an experience..."

Stephen O. • Podcast Delivery Apr 10, 2023

"host Natasha Miller to share a profound moment in their lives and how it relates to a meal they love. Those moments are unpacked and broken down for us to understand; almost like we were there. The vividness of each recounting is so evocative that it transports listeners to the kitchens where these meals were born. Equally evocative is the love Natasha Miller holds for her family and their cultural connections to food. Much of Bitter/Sweet listens like an ode to her late mother and the traditions and recipes that can feel just out of reach in her now-empty kitchen."
