Kansas-based Carey Gillam is an ex-journalist who left Reuters to write about the things that really enthused her – environmentalism and the US food chain.

She now conducts research for non-profit consumer group US Right to Know, putting together Freedom of Information requests to try and open up aspects of food production.

Carey is currently completing a book about the health and environmental impacts of agrochemicals that is due out this year.

She surveys a week in regulatory wind-back with Kim, and looks ahead to efforts being made on behalf of scientists to fight gagging orders under a Trump presidency.
