Soylent

SoylentMay 13, 2014 – Segment 4

In the latest edition of Sound Bites, I talk with Bhaskar Sunkara, founding Editor of Jacobin and a Senior Editor at In These Times, on Sunkara’s recent op-ed for Al Jazeera America called “Let’s Embrace the End of Food,” about soylent, a powdered meal replacement.

Then, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Michael Moss joins us to talk about his book Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us.

We also look at the April 30th CSX train derailment in Lynchburg, Virginia, which dumped more than 20,000 gallons of crude into the James River, with Pat Calvert, Upper James Riverkeeper, and Jamie Brunkow, Lower James Riverkeeper.

We close out the show with a recipe for garlic scapes from Kristen Carbone of Radix Farm.
