Continuing the exploration of local podcasts this summer, in this Creator Conversation Ashely and Nabeel talk about their food-based podcast, OKC Foodcast.

In your own words, what is the OKC Foodcast podcast about?

OKC Foodcast is all about great food in Oklahoma and the stories that shape that food. We bring in local chefs and restaurant owners to find out what inspires them and tell us their intention behind great restaurant and bar concepts. The podcast also keeps listeners up to date on the latest and greatest food news in the ever-changing food landscape of OKC.

Who is the podcast intended for?

Really, anyone who lives to eat. From the casual restaurant goer to the avid foodie! We want to spread the word to locals and those new to OKC of what is hot, new and hidden around the metro.

Why did you want to start the podcast?

We love discovering delicious food around the city, and we thought it would be fun to start a podcast to discuss one of our topics & passions – Food. Too often we had heard that there wasn’t much to do in OKC and nothing great to eat. We made it our mission to prove them wrong. We feel like this podcast really shines a light on how fast the Oklahoma City food scene is growing and we couldn’t be happier to help spread the word!

What’s a good episode for first time listeners to check out?

Gosh, we’ve had the privilege to have some amazing guests on the podcast! I think Episode #15 with Chef Black from Black Walnut was a great episode, as well as Episode #16 with Miguel & Dom from Roam Coffee Co.

What have been some challenges and lessons learned in the production of your podcast?

When we started this little side project/hobby to put out an episode every week, we really didn’t realize how much time, research, and commitment it would require from both of us. We’re learning as we go, and feel like our episodes are just getting better as we continue our food journey through OKC.

Any behind-the-scenes stories you wish to share?

Let’s let behind the scenes stay behind the scenes J

What do you hope people will take away after listening to your podcast?

Most importantly, that there is always something new and great to try in OKC! We also hope that through the interviews of local chefs and creators that people enjoy the fascinating stories and the inspiration behind greatest eats in OKC.

Anything else you want to say or let people know?

We’re just grateful for the support we have received in this short amount of time that we have been on air. The Oklahoma food community is truly something special and unique and we’re glad to be a part of that.
