“When was the last time you changed YOUR mind?” - Tamar Haspel 

Tamar Haspel is a James Beard award-winning Washington Post columnist. She has been on the food and science beat for the best part of two decades and is knee-deep in the public food conversation. Tamar speaks frequently at venues where the debates about our food supply play out, including the National Academy of Sciences, food- and ag-related conferences, and SXSW. When she’s tired of the heavy lifting of journalism, Tamar helps her husband on their oyster farm, Barnstable Oyster, where they grow about 300,000 oysters a year in the beautiful waters off Cape Cod.

Tune in to this episode to learn about:

  • How and why Tamar started writing about nutrition
  • Tamar’s opinion and insight about cultivating productive conversations about food and nutrition
  • Tamar’s thought-provoking question that makes people stop and think differently about their own opinions and biases
  • Why it’s important to appreciate the fact that personal experience has the ability to override research findings
  • Why we have the tendency to try and connect the dots (and leap to cause and effect conclusions) and what we can do about it
