Cynthia Graber

         print and radio journalist


Fascination with people and their stories. Love of languages and travel. Curiosity about science and the natural world. These characteristics led to my career as a journalist, covering science, food, culture, the environment, and any other stories that intrigue me, all over the world.

In 2014, Nicola Twilley and I launched Gastropod! As the name might imply, it’s a podcast that delves into food through the lens of science and history. It’s available on iTunes, Stitcher, and any podcasting app, and all our episodes can be streamed directly from our website. Gastropod was honored as the 2015 best culinary audio series from the International Association of Culinary Professionals, and we won a regional Edward R. Murrow award from the Radio Television Digital News Association. In 2016, the Improper Bostonian named us “Boston’s Best Podcast.”
