Eating Outside the Norm
In this episode of Meat and Three, we are trying to move beyond western medical definitions, and thinking outside the box to better understand disordered eating. Disordered eating has a history of visibility as a negative disease, and largely impacting a small population. Historically, young, white women and girls are depicted in the media and in literature with eating disorders. However, the phenomenon of disordered eating, which we’re using here to mean “eating outside of the norm” contains far more nuance in who and how it is actually experienced. We’re diving into the nuance soup to explore what a Girl Dinner is and could mean, a medical anthropologist's perspective on intuitive eating, and the impact of fad diets and social media on our collective psyches.
You’re Invited!: Mystery and Mindfulness at Dinner
We’re hosting a dinner party, and you are all invited! On this week’s Meat and Three, we explore the complex meanings behind sharing a meal with friends, family, and acquaintances. We dive into how a casual dinner party can be a conduit for community building and fostering connections across diverse frontiers, and how food is central to these experiences. We will also see how some unexpected guests at these get-togethers can spark up some mystery while enjoying a home-cooked meal.
Bursting at the Seams: Aesthetics, Sustainability and Self-Expression
The clothes we wear day in and day out can impact our sense of self-worth, or become a fundamental form of self-expression. From books to online personas to restaurants, we can’t help but cultivate an aesthetic. This episode of Meat and Three is all about what we wear and what it communicates to the world around us.

Cookbooks: Past and Present
Behind a great meal is often a well crafted recipe. This week on Meat + Three we are opening up the cookbook to explore how foodways are preserved through text. We talk to librarians, YouTubers, cooks, publishers, about the history of cookbooks and the state of the cookbook publishing industry today. From Black cookbooks to an artist’s reimagining of a community cookbook in Maine, we are reading widely. If you can’t get your nose out of the cookbook, this week is for you!
The Changing Landscape of Food Media
You may have heard it said that “the eyes eat first”. This is especially true of the social media world, and this week on Meat + Three, we are examining the intersection of the digital world with food. We talked with people across the landscape of food media, from talent agencies to blogs and magazines in order to understand a bit more about how we, collectively, are all in-real-time experiencing changes in the food media industry.
Sewing Seeds Rooted in Community
This week on Meat and Three we’re traversing across the country to learn how members of diasporic communities are preserving cultural heritage through seed saving. We’ll introduce you to farmers growing Korean perilla in California, Hmong medicinal herbs and indigenous corn in Wisconsin, and Somali water spinach in Maine.
