This episode, Gastropod explores the shocking history and atomic secrets of cutlery.

Along the way, we discover the connection between table knives and face shape, learn how to throw a spoon-and-food tasting party, and meet the fork’s distant ancestor, the ravioli spear.

Special guests include Bee Wilson, food historian and author of Consider the Fork, and Zoe Laughlin, co-founder/director of the Institute of Making, with a cameo from design writer Sarah C. Rich.
