From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 8 May 2024

When best-selling authors Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser first exposed the issues created by an industrialized food system in their documentary Food Inc, they didn't expect to do a sequel. But sixteen years later, they say Big Ag is creating even bigger economic, environmental and health issues. Food Inc 2 has journalist Eric Schlosser revealing the new dangers from food oligopolies. We'll talk to him about the new documentary and his piece in The Atlantic, Do We Really Want a Food Cartel?
