April 28, 2016 – Segment 2
We host our newest edition of Sound Bites, our series about our food and our world. We begin the hour with an interview with Destiny Watford, a young activist from Baltimore who won the Goldman Prize, the world’s largest award recognizing grassroots environmental activists, for her work to stop plans to build the Fairfield incinerator – the nation’s largest incinerator – less than a mile away from her high school.
We examine America’s growing obsession with bottled water. With: Roberto Ferdman, journalist who covers food and economics for The Washington Post; Christopher Hogan, IOM Vice President of Communications for the International Bottled Water Association; and Emily Wurth, Water Program Director for Food and Water Watch.
Sound Bites with a recipe for a simple and refreshing take on pasta: spaghetti aglio e olio, from culinary aficionado Sam Levin.
