Sound Bites: From Our Archives – Behind The Kitchen Door | A Kayak Trip Through Delmarva

Saru Jayaraman May 6, 2014 – Segment 3

This week on Sound Bites we start with a conversation about the poor working conditions in America’s restaurant industry, with activist, author, and professor Saru Jayaraman. Jayaraman’s new book, Behind The Kitchen Door, examines how restaurant workers survive on some of the lowest wages in America and investigates how this fact impacts the food arriving at our tables. 

We conclude this week’s Sound Bites by taking a look at the Delmarva Peninsula with Tom Horton, Professor of Practice in Environmental Studies at Salisbury University who covered the environment for the Baltimore Sun for 35 years, and Bill Nelson, Lecturer in Environmental Studies at Salisbury University. When they returned from a month-long kayak trip around Delmarva with a group of students from the university, they joined us to discuss the region’s length and breadth, its edges and interiors, and its people and critters.
