We’ve talked a lot about the topics of food security and food choice on the show, and I think most of you will agree that it can be hard to keep a healthy diet. But, have you ever considered if some of our food decisions are beyond our control? Are certain foods engineered to be addictive, like drugs or alcohol? An how complicit is the food industry in creating and marketing such foods? We’ll cover these topics and more today with our special guest, Pulitzer prize winning and best selling author, Michael Moss. He’ll share insights from his latest book, Hooked: Food, Free Will and How the Food Giants Exploit Our Addictions.

Fresh Banana Leaves with Dr. Jessica Hernandez

Fresh Banana Leaves with Dr. Jessica Hernandez

Human health and the sustainability of our global food systems are both intimately linked to the health of planet Earth. But, with the rise of climate change, our world is less healthy than ever before. Despite the undeniable fact that Indigenous communities are among the most affected by climate devastation, Indigenous science is nowhere to be found in mainstream environmental policy or discourse. We have so much to learn from Indigenous holistic land, water and forest management. This week, we’re joined by Indigenous environmental scientist, Dr. Jessica Hernandez, who breaks down why Western conservationism isn’t working and offers Indigenous perspectives on this critical issue. Jessica is author of a new book, Fresh Banana Leaves: Healing Indigenous Landscapes through Indigenous Science.
