Sound Bites: Gather Baltimore’s Kickstarter Campaign | Plastics and Our Oceans | Schmaltz

trash2December 23, 2014 – Segment 4

Gather Baltimore Founder Arthur Morgan and Earl Johnson, Executive Director of the Come Home Baltimore Foundation, join us to talk about a new kickstarter campaign that will help bring fresh, healthy food to the people of Baltimore.

We take a look at plastics: In the grocery line and in our oceans. Our guests will be: the Rev. Merrrick Moise, writer, community activist, teacher, and one of the first African-American persons ordained within the Old Catholic Movement in Baltimore; and Dr. Marcus Eriksen, Director of Research and co-founder of the 5 Gyres Institute, and lead author of a recent study on plastics and the ocean.

Have you ever eaten schmaltz? We close today’s show with a recipe for this onion-scented chicken fat dish, which has recently gained a younger and more hip fan base. With Melissa Clark, who writes about food for The New York Times.
