Welcome To The My Food Job Rocks! Podcast Website

The My Food Job Rocks! Podcast was developed to inform people about cool jobs in the food industry.

Every Monday morning, we interview people from all walks of life from jobs ranging from Product Developers, Sales Managers, Food Writers, and CEOs. As long as they love what they do, then we listen!

We ask our guests about what they do, why they do it, and then dive into fun and informative questions ranging from upcoming food trends to their favorite kitchen utensil.

Do you like what we do? We take virtual high fives as payment but let us know what you think, who we should interview, and how we can improve by emailing me at
