This week the show welcomes Tracie McMillan the author of the recently published ‘The American Way of Eating: Undercover at Walmart, Applebee’s, Farm Fields and the Dinner Table’, Tracie's book takes a look at what seems to be a simple topic, eating in America, and through research, workiing in the farm fields of California, in Walmarts in Detroit, and finally in an Applebee's in Brooklyn, reveals that how, what, and why we eat like we do to be a much more compelling and complex question after all.
Tonight on the show we will talk with Tracie about her journey writing, working, eating, and understanding about how we eat in America today.
It should be a fantastic show, and I hope you can join us!
