iHeartRadio’s New Podcast, “Service: Stories of Hunger and War,” Explores the Intersection of War and Food Just in Time for Veteran’s Day
Have you ever wondered how the way people consume or understand food can change for members of the military during wartime? A new podcast from iHeartRadio explores just that: It’s called “Service: Stories of Hunger and War,” and in each episode, the show follows members of the military, veterans or wartime volunteers from their homes in the United States through overseas deployment and then back home again. Listeners will get a firsthand look at where they served and what that was like as well as how they were fed, what they ate and what tastes they missed the most while away at war. The podcast brings together a range of individuals — from World War II veterans through to today’s active or returning military members — and brings them together to remember, reflect and show respect.
The show is hosted by Jacqueline Raposo, a food writer and podcast producer. Raposo has held interviews and written for a number of publications such as Saveur, Food & Wine, Town & Country and The Village Voice. She also hosts a live weekly podcast called “Love Bites” on the Heritage Radio Network and features guests from a wide range of industries including food, business, medicine and the arts. On the podcast, Raposo has sat down with NASA engineer Rashied Amini, powerhouse CEO Sarah Robb O’Hagan and legendary hospitality couple Rozanne Gold and Michael White.
As a first-generation Azorean-American, the American side of Raposo’s family has served in every U.S. military engagement since the Civil War. With “Service: Stories of Hunger and War,” she humbly amplifies the stories of our veterans and wartime volunteers and shares their experiences through the universal language of food.
