I spend a lot of time listening to podcasts while training for marathons, and this weekend’s run offered a perfect mash-up of my favorite things: running, eating and New Orleans.

This week’s edition of “Splendid Table,” hosted by Lynne Rossetto Kasper, focused on the Crescent City.

The show includes interviews with Leah Chase, the revered Queen of Creole Cuisine and owner of the restaurant Dooky Chase; Poppy Tooker, who hosts Louisiana Eats! on NOLA’s NPR station; a discussion of New Orleans’ restaurant scene with Lolis Eric Elie, who is also a writer on HBO’s “Treme”; and recently retired bartender Chris McMillian, who stirs up a Sazerac.

I listened to the podcast for the last hour or so of my 20-miler, and it certainly made those last few miles a lot easier to take.

Here’s a link to the “Splendid Table” web site, and I’d recommend downloading the entire show. It’s guaranteed to make your day go a little bit better, too.
