DescriptionEdit

Coverage of Top Chef began in December of 2014, when four RHAP podcasters (Antonio Mazzaro, Curt Clark, Josh Wigler, and Mike Bloom) found they were all fans of the show. They discussed their thoughts about the franchise as a whole and covered the currently-airing season up to that point. They then returned to do two other podcasts periodically throughout the season. Weekly coverage began in season 13, and featured some configuration of the main four hosts for every podcast. In season 15, Antonio and Josh no longer served as co-hosts due to time commitments, making guest appearances. In their stead, Haley Strong, who had appeared on several podcasts in the past, became a full-time member of the judges roundtable. The two then returning as recurring hosts for season 16.
