Every couple weeks food writers Raj Patel and Tom Philpott, along with producer Rebecca McInroy sit down with a leading figure in the world of food, history and politics. It is through food that we explore the human condition. Asking questions such as, "Why does milk have its own food group?" "Who suffers when I buy organic bananas?" and "How could better food transform our prison system?" If you want to be an ethical food consumer but don't know where to start, this show is for you!

brilliant, fascinating dissection of what food means to us

As the curator of the health and medicine TED conference, TEDMED, I’m always looking for intelligent analysis and historic understanding of elements of our health. The Secret Ingredient not only does this beautifully, but it also weaves in politics, economics, gender relations, psychology, sociology, and culture. It’s 3 on 1 interviewing style comes from an old BBC show and works perfectly. The 3 interviewers play well off each other and have distinct, complementary perspectives. As an avid podcast listener of interview shows, compelling narrative, and geeky topics, this one feeds me on all levels.

Reluctant Texan

Would be great to get the actual show, rather than an episode of the Texas Standard (an entirely different show from KUT, hosted by the irritating David Brown). A great example of the subtle incompetence that pushed me from KUT to podcasts in the first place.

Brilliant! Thank you!

This podcast is a free class about history, politics and society around my favorite subject: food. Thank you for answering the important questions about food, for exposing nutritionism, foodie naïveté, the problems with and solutions to First World Guilt, the facets of food beyond nutrition-- emotions, pleasure, taste, social relations, justice, the need to think intersectionally, transnationally, and locally, to look at the big picture or in Raj's brilliant words to make our modern world strange. Sidney Mintz, wow, what a neat way to start! Amazing commentary, amazing interviewees, funny, intelligent, deep, important, relevant, necessary. Gracias! Thank you for doing this!
