Motivational and Fun

The Secret Ingredient is an excellent source of information regarding food politics. As an admirer of Raj Patel’s work, I love listening to these podcasts to hear more of his insights on capitalism, social movements, and food. The topics have gotten a touch out of the realm of food politics but the episodes continue to motivate me and give me ideas on how I can make an impact in my life. I hope to see an episode about food allergies soon or more about current food policies, possibly at the state or local level. I enjoyed the one about Austin so much!

Amazingly insightful and innovative podcast pulling power gender political economy and food all into one. Just a shame there are not more !
