Podcast on Real Food and Crunchy Cons
Today we talk with Nina Planck, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why and Rod Dreher, author of Crunchy Cons, about what appears to some to be an oxymoron: conservatives who care about organic gardening, farmer's markets and saving the environment. We talk with both guests about how politics and food are tied together and why all Americans of different political persuasions should care about what they eat, farmer's markets and the environment.
There is also discussion of the emptiness of McMansions (mine is great--thank you very much), the irony of it costing a freaking fortune to buy an artichoke at a health food store (while the pamphlet next to the counter touts the horror of third world poverty) and how to shop for real foods on a budget.
