About This Show
The Edible Radio Network is a collection of podcasts by publishers of local Edible Magazines across the US and Canada. Through our publications, podcasts, supporting websites, TV and events, we connect consumers with family farmers, growers, chefs, and food artisans of all kinds. We believe that every person has the right to affordable, fresh, healthful food on a daily basis and that knowing where our food comes from is a powerful thing.
Each podcast episode brings listeners closer to a food, a farmer, an artisan or an author, looking into the tapestry of food culture at the individual-thread level to reveal the intricacies of the whole.
