Reviews For Radio Cherry Bombe

I love the way this podcast transports me out of my everyday life and into the exciting and inspiring world of authentic women making a difference. I always learn so much! I often listen while I’m falling asleep because I find it so soothing!
Just showing love to Chef Kia!!!
“Women prefer male fashion designers???” Really Kerry you should have called her out on that.
This podcast has saved me on so many occasions. Kerry asks such insightful questions and is so genuine in her approach to each interview. I look forward to each episode, and even though I am not in the food industry—it never fails to touch my heart with a sense of true belonging. Thank you for all that you do! Love love love it!
I only listened to 2.5 eps. I know everyone has to create a brand but for some reason all the “bombe” talk seemed like overkill. I am female and it also seemed too female (or stereotypical over the top female). I think the idea is wonderful. It just wasn’t for me.
This show never fails to inspire me! I love the mix of practical career advice and broader conversations about the politics of food.


While I almost always adore the podcast, I often find Kerry generalizing and stereotyping Americans compleeeetely from her New York perspective. And it’s just annoying. Listening today was a great example— “Americans are finally starting to appreciate rhubarb.” HA! What? Rhubarb has been a staple ingredient for generations for an entire third of the country (just chop off each coast line). It would be much more enjoyable to listen to is she didn’t perpetually assume so much about her entire (large and very varied) homeland.
It’s a sad day for me as a podcast-loving foodie and home cook- the very podcast that got me into podcasts and took me to the next level in my journey to become a domestic goddess has posted a podcast today celebrating Planned Parenthood and abortion. Despite their vehemently and insultingly anti-conservative post-election podcast I found from 2016, I decided to keep listening because their content is so awesome. My mom bought me their cookbook for my birthday last summer and it changed my culinary life. I can’t tell you how many of their episodes have inspired me to take my food obsession to the next level. I’m sad to have to say that today I will be unsubscribing and not listening to their podcast anymore. They have turned an amazing platform for female home cooks, foodies, and chefs into a political propaganda podcast. Until they have a female pro-life women who cook episode to balance their platform, I will never be listening to them again. Abortion does not belong in my kitchen. It sounds like the only thing y’all support women baking in their oven is cookies; not babies. A reminder to ladies of New York City: Planned Parenthood does NOT speak on behalf of all women. How many women have their services killed before they had the chance to be born? How many future Julia Childs have been aborted since your services started? Bon voyage, bombe squad. It’s too bad that conservative women will never be welcome in your #bombesquad 👎🏻
This podcast is incredibly inspirational, funny, warm, and informational. My only frustration with it is that interviews very (very!) frequently end just as they are getting into the actual nitty gritty info and the actual how-to. Breaks my heart a little. Also, the oldest Jubilee episodes have broken audio and it's still not fixed so that's a bummer. That said, Julia is a masterful interviewer who approaches the job with such purity, simplicity, nuance, charm and grace and the guests range from absolutely epic to I'm-so-glad-I-heard-of-this-person-now!
Radio Cherry Bombe is smart, fun and inspiring. I always feel good when I listen to Radio Cherry Bombe. I recommend it.
LOVE. Brava, Kerry & Bombe Squad.
I have listened to this podcast for years and it never fails to interest me! Kerry is an excellent host, with connections and experience in the food industry, who interviews her guests so nicely! I love learning more about women in food. Thank you guys!
Love Radio Cherry Bombe. Listen to it on my commute to the different restaurants and resorts I cater to. Kerry has one of the best voices for radio and her guests always inspire me.

I’m so excited about cooking again; thanks!! 💚
I love the mission of Cherry Bombe and the guests on the show are exceptional. I wish Kerry was more assertive in her interviews. It often feels more like she’s fangirling instead of asking the hard questions. The interviewees are amazing and listeners will understand that from hearing their responses rather than from the host constantly gushing about them. I’m also confused why the mistakes aren’t edited out of the podcast. Is it necessary to hear an ad twice because it was misread the first time? I have so much faith in this podcast and think that it could become really great if it continues to improve.
Great content and wonderful interviews. It’s like they know the questions I have an answer them! Thank you for a great show!
Fun and hip but thoughtful and reverent when it should be, RCB is like your best friend in a podcast. Kerry Diamond is charming and well informed and draws the best from her guests.
Once you get a taste of the Cherry Bombe podcast, you'll be compelled to listen to it all the time. I swear. I discovered Cherry Bombe when I saw their cookbook event listed on the Harvard Bookstore website, featuring one of my favorite local chefs, Joanne Chang. I have learned so much from this podcast, and it keeps me constantly engaged and curious about the accomplished women featured in each show. Kerry is just as charismatic in person as she is via audio, and this is hands down my favorite podcast. Thank you Kerry and Claudia for creating such an amazing platform!
This is one of the best podcasts ever! Been a fan and listen faithfully since 2015!
I love RCB for a few reasons. First and foremost, the food talk from interesting women (and some men). I learn so much in almost every episode. Second, Kerry Diamond is a warm, enthusiastic interviewer and really supportive of her guests' topics, whether it's a new cookbook or a coconut milk yogurt or an online market. It's a great way to keep up on food news.
Love to unwind to Cherry Bombe while cooking. Such a pleasure to listen to! Thank you for featuring such interesting women as your guests, I learn something from each episode.
I discovered Radio Cherry Bombe about two months ago, and I have been binge-listening through the archives while waiting for the weekly episodes to launch. The interviews are always entertaining, informative, and insightful. They host an impressive variety of guests, yet they always keep the conversation relatable for listeners of all beliefs and backgrounds. I have gained a lot of motivation from the conversations for my own work in the food world, but I also just find it fun (you can't NOT dance to the theme music or get excited during the speed round). I now have a reason to look forward to Thursdays! Please keep the amazing content coming!
I started listening to Radio Cherry Bombe about six months ago, but just recently subscribed. I love this podcast. After ordering a few past issues of Cherry Bombe I was even more in love. Great guests, warm and personable hosts, thought provoking subjects. What more could you want?
You requested some folks worthy of interview: the gals from Local Mouthful, Joy and Marisa are fabulous. LOVE their podcast. Also, please Lindsay Anderson and Dana VanVeller of FEAST...Smitten Kitchen?
always so empowering to hear from these amazing food-adjacent women! thank you, bombesquad!
Awesome podcast. Smart, funny, always uplifting. Just great. Thank you, Kerry Diamond and Heritage Radio Network.
Smart and fun and companionable, aka all the things you want from a pod.
Really really interesting. They interview all kinds of women I love hearing about somebody and something new with every interview.
Wonderful. Love to listen each week!
Love listening to Kerry & Claudia chat up the coolest ladies in food. Perfect companion for my commute!
My favorite show 😻

Hooked! Great show, great guests!
Radio Cherry Bombe always leaves me inspired by smart women. The positive energy and great guests keep me listening for more. I'm a super fan and especially love the speed round. Thank you also to Donna in the sales dept. for the magazine order help and great customer service. After seeing the back issues were available at the 3rd Jubilee (thank you Instagram post) my order was over a week late. Donna, a real person, wrote me a note saying if it didn't arrive she'd send out a new copy and any issue of my choice. The next day my original copy came. I thanked her, she asked what copy I would like as a compliment and boom Issue 4 was in my mailbox two days later. That personal touch made this hospitality professional beyond pleased. Y'all are the cherries on top of great content and personal service. Cheers to you. 🍒🍒🍒
This is my new favorite food podcast. The guests are interesting and inspiring. I thoroughly enjoyed the recent interview with Jodi Berg. What a great and diverse line up of fascinating women (and men). Thanks for your hard work! Also, enjoy hearing from west coast interviewees and the places you visit on the west coast. Can't wait to hear more about the Jubilee!
My absolute favorite podcast! Each episode leaves me feeling incredibly inspired and I love the variety of women they interview! THANK YOU! My only wish is that there were more episodes each week because I love it so much!
I look forward to the show every week! What you're doing is amazing. Would love to see video (short or long) in addition to the podcast. Would also love to hear interviews with Rachel Khoo (Khoollect), Amy Thielen (New Midwestern Table), and Ella Woodward (Deliciously Ella). Thanks!
Really like your show and all of the interesting guests you have on. Always a good listen. But I have to fast forward through your intro music - any chance you can change it next season, it’s not so great.
This show has a lot of good things going for it! Great guests and inviting conversation, celebration of women in food, and overall good vibes. One of my go-to’s!
I really enjoy the content of the show, fabulous guest lineup, the host asks interesting questions and it’s a fun listen, but you guys need to work on the audio quality, I am constantly having to adjust the volume because the host’s voice is very low and many times the guests voices sound really loud and perhaps over caffeinated...
I love this show. The guests are fantastic. I would like to offer some constructive criticism to Ms. Turshen, however. You need to speak up! It really shows when you are interviewing powerhouses like Reichl and Sheraton. You're on the air, it's different than speaking one-on-one. And another thing, you often say "that's funny" to three or four answers in a row. Come on. You can do better than that.
Really great to hear from the women in food. Inspiring and entertaining.
I love listening to the show every week. great range of guests and terrific questions. always leaves me wanting more!
Love the magazine, love the radio show
Love it!
I can't wait for season 2!
Can’t wait for season 2!
