Description

The Cheesecast is a podcast about, you guessed it, cheese! Two Olivet College professors, Kirk Hendershott-Kraetzer, PhD, and Daine Pavloski, explore the world of cheese through a podcast from the Margaret Upton Conservatory on the campus of Olivet College. Kirk is a well-traveled, well-informed cheese-knower, while Daine doesn't know the difference between Gruyere and Gouda. Join them on their adventure to learn, laugh and, most importantly, eat cheese. Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/thecheesecast/support
