For those of you still charmed by the simple pleasure of ye olde radio, please take note of “The Food Chain,” (not to be confused with Slow Food USA’s monthly email newsletter of the same name).
Each week, host Michael Olson explores topics ranging from farms in the city to humanely raised animals, and encourages listeners to call in and get engaged in the conversation. You can listen live on the radio, or via your computer, or download a podcast after the fact. It’s good stuff, but you might want to think twice about listening to the recent show about what happens behind restaurant kitchen doors…!
As described on their website:
The Food Chain is an audience-interactive newstalk radio program that airs live on Saturdays from 9am to 10am Pacific time. The Food Chain, which has been named the Ag/News Show of the Year by California’s legislature, is hosted by Michael Olson, author of the Ben Franklin Book of the Year award-winning MetroFarm, a 576-page guide to metropolitan agriculture.
