Dr Thao Dam explores how food is experienced digitally, through the Korean-originated practice of mukhbang, where people pay to watch others eat inline.

These episodes of the Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity (UBVO) podcast were recorded at seminars in 2022, convened by Stanley Ulijaszek and Tanja Schneider. The focus is on how the digital and online world is influencing how and what people eat.

Our sincere thanks go to the speakers who contributed.
