Political Perspectives on 03/24/09

Air date: 
Tue, 03/24/2009 - 9:30am - 10:00am

Host Emily Young interviews Joel Berg, author of "All You Can Eat: How Hungry is America?"

In his new book Joel Berg looks at the growing number of people who are hungry in America. He  takes to task politicians who remain inactive; the media, which ignores hunger except during holidays and hurricanes; and the food industry, which makes fattening, artery-clogging fast food more accessible to the nation’s poor than healthy fare. He even chides organic food gurus such as Michael Pollan and Alice Waters for saying that the recent increase in food costs is a positive development, an assertion Berg deems to be class biased.

"Potato Talk!" 

Potatoes are Oregon’s 7th biggest cash crop, grown primarily for frozen French fries and chips in the Columbia Basin, and in the Klamath Basin for fresh sales. Tubers also kept our grandparents and parents alive during the Great Depression. Maybe you’re cooking with them more now, to stretch those food dollars during these tight times. Though maligned by the low-carb craze, potatoes are a vitamin-and-fiber-rich nutritional punch.

On today’s show we’ll hear from:
•    Eco-chef and activist Bryant Terry who will tempt us with a recipe for “Cumin-Cayenne Mashed Potatoes with Carmelized Onions,” from his just released cookbook, Vegan Soul Kitchen: Fresh, Healthy, and Creative African-American Cuisine. The third person to call (503) 231-8187 after the interview will win a free copy of the book!

•    Heirloom potato breeder Tom Wagner of Tater-Mater Seeds in Everett, Wash.

•    Local organic farmer Lyle Stanley of Gee Creek Farm, on potato varieties and how to plant them.

•    Roosevelt High School students overcoming learning disabilities in the garden.
