    Diaspora - Building a Better Spice Trade.

    Diaspora - Building a Better Spice Trade.

    The original intent of colonial conquest of the Indian subcontinent was a desire for domination of the spice trade. 600+ years later, as a young woman born and raised in postcolonial Mumbai, working at the intersection of food and culture, Sana Javeri Kadri founder of @diasporaco, was slowly discovering that not much about that system had changed. Farmers made no money, spices changed hands upwards of 10 times between farmer and consumer, and the final spice on the shelf was usually an old, dusty, and flavorless shadow of what it once was. Living a life between two worlds - India and USA, and mindfully impacting lives in both places. Listen to Sana’s passion in this episode.

Informative and interesting topic

Enjoyed listening to this very interesting podcast. Both the speaker and the Interviewer were extremely articulate. Had heard about the medicinal properties of silver but learnt a lot about this unusual product - silver yarn. Have to check out the web site.
