It’s another live episode of Sound Bites!

Denzel Mitchell, founder of Five Seeds Farm & Apiary; Blain  and Reagan Hooton, farmer at the Baltimore Free Farm, join us to talk about urban farming.

Then, we debate the Senate’s amendments to the Farm Bill, which would block SNAP benefits for life to those recipients who have at any time been convicted of one of a Senate-designated list of violent crimes, with Tad DeHaven, state and federal budget analyst for the Cato Institute, and Brentin Mock, New Orleans-based journalist and reporter for Colorlines.

We end this week’s Sound Bites with Sandor Ellix Katz, who shares a fermentation recipe. He is a fermentation revivalist and author of Wild FermentationThe Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved, and The Art of Fermentation.
