My name is Otis Gray, and I am insatiably hungry.

Besides having a concerning appetite for food, my hunger for good stories is the heart and soul of the Hungry podcast.

What is Hungry?
Hungry is about the food we eat, where it comes from, and the stories of the people who make it.

When Hungry talks about Chef Cristina Martinez's unbelievable tacos, we don't just talk about the art of making barbacoa - we talk about immigration policy in the U.S., and how it effects real people who make your food. 

When we talk about mouth-watering pastrami sandwiches from your favorite deli, it's hard not to appreciate the vital role of the Jewish Deli after World War II. 

Hungry is about more than just food. It's about the history of food, and the real-life stories that make it richer. In each episode, we harness the universal language of food to convey these stories.

After less than 8 months of being around, Hungry is already a 5-Star podcast on iTunes with some really amazing and humbling reviews! 

Why Patreon?
Making this podcast currently requires 100% of the time I am not at my full-time job as a server in New York City. As a self-taught producer, I write, narrate, edit, and publish all content in addition to finding stories, setting up interviews, recording, and traveling for episodes. Making quality radio takes a lot of time. Your monthly pledges buy more time and resources that allow me to make more great episodes for you. Even making raising enough to work 32 hours/week instead of 40 drastically changes the amount of content I can produce each month. This is invaluable time that you would be contributing to the podcast.

One day, I hope to produce Hungry full-time. With Patreon, we can start small with your direct contributions.

This money also allows Hungry to put uber-talented musicians and artists to work. From composing unique music for each piece, to illustrating cover art for the episodes, there is endless potential for Hungry to collaborate with artists across all mediums to make creative, exciting content.

Thank YOU.
By becoming a patron of Hungry, you are helping to reveal stories from behind the kitchen doors that might have otherwise remained untold. If you like the podcast and believe in what Hungry stands for, I would be honored with your patronage. 

Thank you, and Stay Hungry.

Goals
$9 of $400 per month
My goal is to produce one "full" Hungry episode every 3-4 weeks in addition to smaller "bites." Reaching this milestone will allow me the time to do that, and bring more tasty episodes to your ears. At this milestone, I would be able to work 1-2 days less a week at my full-time job. While this may seem small, those extra two days give me substantial time to find stories, record, and produce episodes.
