History of Home Economics with Shauna Sever

There's much love for the midwest in this episode. It's the birthplace of most of this country's great home economists - and yes, they were and are great. Shauna Sever joins to talk about wellness and personal brands, concepts that go back to the 1860s. Plus some great Rice Krispies Treat tips. And we ask: how many women does it take to make one Betty Crocker?
