My Food Job Rocks!
About This Show
There is very little awareness of what the people in the food industry actually do. This stems back to the lack of knowledge and awareness of the range of degree courses and programs available that will equip them for a career in food.
My FoodJobRocks! by Adam Yee is the first podcast of its kind that allows listeners to hear directly from people who are in the food industry and have a passion for what they do. They share how they became involved in food and describe what it is they do, plus a few more fun questions just to keep things entertaining. Listen to them here, and stay tuned for a new episode every Monday.

Welcome to the My Food Job Rocks Podcast with me, Adam Yee, where we showcase amazing food schools and interview the passionate people who drive the industry forward and this is episode 39! First I gotta say, welcome home This is out final interview for the graduate series and I wanted to interview someone kind of different. Though most of our interviewees are Food Science related in some way, I wanted to get somone a bit different. Eleni Galata studies Agriculture Communications at the University of Missorui and I am so glad I did this interview. Eleni talks about a lot of processes that are easy to follow. So easy to follow I mapped it out on the show notes. We also talk a lot about media such as how GMOs are being perceived by the media and how the best social networks aren’t necessarily about how much money people shove up their accounts, but what matters is that people just have to show that they care. So yea, this is the final interview, I will be distilling and summing up these interviews next episodes in kind of a recap form. Till then, enjoy this one, you are going to learn a lot If you enjoyed this episode, please, sign up on our email list at myfoodjobrocks.com, like us on facebook, rate and review on itunes, and share with your friends.

About Eleni Galata My name is Eleni Galata, and I'm a phd student in Ag and Applied Economics in University of Missouri-Columbia. My work has to do with how people search and share information about food technology, and I study how food advocacy networks can reach important people more efficiently. In my family we always spoke Greek and Russian and since I was a kid, I learned that context matters: Just because one word exists in both languages, just the translation will not always represent identical meanings. I'm a cat-mom and cannot hide my fascination for the Thanksgiving Holiday Tradition or the Mid-West. Key Takeaways - Why Eleni decided to go to the United States (money reasons) and why she wanted to focus her education
