Gravy is the James Beard Foundation Award-winning biweekly podcast approaching its 4th birthday and claiming 35,000 downloads each month. Gravy brings smart Southern food narratives to a national audience, revealing the region in all its complexity, telling true and sometimes difficult stories of Southern pasts and presents.

Gravy showcases a South that is constantly evolving, receiving immigrants from across the world, adopting new traditions, and lovingly maintaining old ones. Gravy uses food to dig into the lesser-known corners of the region, complicate stereotypes, document new dynamics, explore history and family connections, and sing the unsung people who grow, cook, and serve our daily meals.

An archive of Gravy episodes is online here.

SFA seeks independent reporters/producers to make batches of Gravy with us. We define a batch as five 15-20 minute episodes. This is freelance work that will ideally result in recurring batch assignments.  Interested applicants should send a resume, cover letter, and samples of work to Phone interviews for qualified candidates will be scheduled promptly.
