Bakers gonna bake! On Friday, November 18, The Great British Baking ShowHolidays premieres on Netflix. If you love yummy cooking-based podcasts as much as we do at Podsauce, check out Kimberly and Katie’s “A Date with the Bake,” a prim and proper series reviewing The Great British Bake Off.

On the reality TV show, the contestants create their best dishes for a chance to take the cake. Podcast episodes recap the TV show’s episodes, dish on the yummy desserts, and share about the show’s drama that unfolds.

We’d recommend streaming the podcast from the beginning of each season so you’re up to speed without spoilers. So far, “A Date with the Bake” has released over 40 episodes and posts weekly updates. Recent episodes covered the show’s 10th season.

If you’ve listened to “A Date with Dateline,” you’ll recognize Kimberly and Katie’s voices. It’s a Dateline rewatch and recap podcast since they’re hardcore true crime fans who have watched every episode of NBC’s TV series.

On “A Date with the Bake” Kimberly and Katie are also joined by co-host Jake. Hear about judges Paul Hollywood, Prue Leith, and Noel Fielding’s snarkiness, mood swings, and general absurdity as they dramatically react on-camera to the contestants and their work. Recent podcast episodes debriefed on the contestants’ successes, challenges, sweat, toil, and tears over Custard Week, Pastry Week, Dessert Week, and Bread Week.

Listen through as you find out which flakers are going to flake this season on “The Great British Bake Off.” Their podcast description used to say: “If you love American professional amateur podcasters intently watching a group of amateur British bakers compete in a competition for the glory of national pride and a really heavy-looking cake platter trophy with both really just earnestly doing their best, then this is the home for you.”

Check out new episodes of “A Date with the Bake” wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.
