Food Myths

Anna Lappé, and I discuss Diet for a Hot Planet, her book about the challenges and opportunities presented by helping solve the climate crisis by changing the food system.  We uncover and debunk myths about the way food can be grown today and in the future. Anna’s mom, Frances Moore Lappé, wrote the 1971 book Diet for a Small Planet which revolutionized the way we think about food and democracy. Together Anna and Frances co-founded the small planet institute, an international network focused on root causes of hunger and poverty and co-wrote Hope's Edge.
