This 2016-2017 podcast was the first to cover the continuum of chocolate. The Slow Melt uses chocolate as the thick, delicious lens through which to explore the world.

From flavor and physiology to chemistry and conservation, from global markets and gender to climate change, social justice, and beyond, The Slow Melt highlights the people, places, and processes behind this $100 billion industry. By better understanding chocolate, we can better appreciate it, more easily identify what we love, and support the makers and producers that create those kinds of bars. Guests include farmers, conservationists, manufacturers, tasting experts, scientists, social justice advocates, chocolate purveyors, and, of course, award-winning chocolate makers.
