Ever wondered why cheese is the most stolen food or how maple syrup can be a hotbed for criminal activity? In this riveting episode, we sit down with Chris Garcia, the mind behind the eye-opening book "Food and Crime," to explore these questions and more. We dive into the four major categories of food-related crimes: theft, fraud, organized crime, and even assault and murder.
From the ancient history of food fraud to the modern-day artichoke mafia, we unravel the complex relationship between what we eat and the darker aspects of human behavior. We also touch on current events, like the tragic case of a young girl killed over McDonald's sauce packets, to illustrate the sometimes devastating intersections of food and crime. Don't miss this episode that serves up a full course of intrigue, history, and societal impact.
