You probably eat chicken, right? You might even be eating some right now. But how did they go from scrawny fowl, scratching around in the wild, to the industrial commodity that they are now? Maryn McKenna is an American author and journalist whose work has been featured in the New York Times magazine, the Atlantic, NPR, Scientific American, The Guardian and more. Her most recent book is Big Chicken: The Incredible Story of How Antibiotics Created Modern Agriculture and Changed the Way the World Eats. Maryn and Josh sat down to talk about the “invention” of the chicken, the emergence of Super Bugs, and why a viral pandemic will kill us all. Happy Days!Learn more about your ad choices.

Championing political moderation
Josh Zepps strikes me as one of those way too few people who truly manage to keep an open mind on current topics without simply following a political camp. Also, he does have the ability to articulate his thoughts extraordinarily eloquently - hugely supported by his great humour and adorable Australian accent. His Podcast "We the People Live" is dedicated to making 'debate healthy again', a slogan aimed at the tendency of people to stick with their echo chamber and discount the opposite side as bigoted or naïve, respectively. Josh Zepps like few others manages to navigate the difficult territory between political left and right, relying on reason and sceptical thinking.
