Our lives are frequently and significantly affected by food. Because we must eat to survive, many human cultures have developed with food at their very core. Through prosperous times and depression what we eat has influenced art, music, science, relationships, and more. In this fast-paced world, we often don’t take the time to consider how food gets to our plates, the importance of what and how that food is produced and the aesthetics of food requirements and food enjoyment. Often, seemingly obscure or unrelated aspects of life circle their way back to food. The goal of this podcast is to explore the complexity and nuance of the global food system, celebrate the progress we have made, and debate the best ways for humans to proceed forward into the future. Join Scott and Jay as they informally discuss these points with various contributors from Kansas State University and abroad.

Annnnnna Waller ,

Interesting dialogue about food systems!

Really enjoying this podcast during my work commutes to learn and think about some of these deep issues with food systems and food security! The hosts keep the content on track and understandable. I’m able to hear directly from prominent scientists on their ideas and opinions that I normally wouldn’t get a chance to know. Love it!
