What’s your favorite food? Why does it taste so good? It turns out, what we think is tasty isn’t just a matter of opinion. It’s science! Ecologist and science writer Rob Dunn takes us on a journey back in time, before kitchens, cooking, and even farming! We find out how our ancestors’ tastes shaped our own cravings – and how our experiences lead us to pick our favorites.
Curious to learn more about the science of taste? Listen to our bonus interview episode with Rob Dunn on Patreon! Available for Patrons who support Tumble at the $1/ level or higher! Pledge at patreon.com/tumblepodcast.

Our next episode on June 11 will be the final episode of Season 6! But don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of listening on our feed over the summer – and we’ll be doing Patreon birthday shoutouts!
