On the newest episode of Sound Bites, our series about our food and our world, we begin the show with a look at St. Brigit’s Day, which was celebrated on February 1. St. Brigit is the patron saint of cattle, chicken farmers, dairymaids, dairy workers, milk maids, poultry farmers, poultry raisers, watermen & more – so we deem her the saint of Sound Bites!

Next, I interview journalist Andrew Lawler about his fascinating book Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?

We close out Sound Bites with a special leftover couscous salad recipe from Michael Twitty, Culinary Historian of African and African American Foodways and blogger at Afroculinaria.
