That little tidbit has nothing to do with this weeks post! I have some audible tidbits for you–podcasts you can download onto your computer or MP3 player and listen to at your leisure.
Food politics–check out NPR at http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast/podcast_directory.php Here is Michael Pollan discussing the new movie Food, Inc. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=105285829
Wine–I’m a big fan of Natalie McLean, author of Red, White, and drunk all over. http://www.nataliemaclean.com/tv_radio.asp The podcasts are either her bimonthly email recorded or interviews she does with media all over North America.
Food– This directory includes 20 podcasts related to food. Use the Podcast category tool on the right hand side of the page to view all 20. (Apologies that the Top Posts list above can’t be removed–seems most of the top ones are NOT food related).
