It's been a big week for thinking about food--home-cooked food.

In this week's episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, which is hosted by James Ledbetter, the editor of Inc. and Inc.com, our slate of writers and editors explore a new wave of startups that are cooking up food companies. They're facilitating ways for at-home chefs to bring meals to the hungry public. There's just one small thing-in most cases, doing this is not entirely legal. Senior writer Christine Lagorio-Chafkin surveys the burgeoning scene of these scrappy companies--and explores the challenges they face around the country.

Next, it's an open question what will happen with many small-business subsidies as Donald J. Trump takes the nation's highest office next year. On Inc.com, our reporters have been exploring likely scenarios -- including that for the solar industry. In Inc. reporter Kevin J. Ryan's debut on the podcast, he explores what is not looking like a very bright future for the industry.

Plus, for this week's Exit Interview segment, the crew is joined by Rick Smith, the co-founder of Taser International. He explains how he created the iconic company and took it public in a dramatic IPO.

As always, you can listen to individual episodes of the Inc. Uncensored podcast on the Panoply network or on iTunes, where you can also subscribe. And please don't hesitate to let us know what you think by leaving a rating or review -- or dropping us a note.
