Our secret ingredient, for this special live taping, is SXSW! We wanted to explore the future of food on this show, and what better way to ask questions about the future of anything, than through the lens of this tech heady conference that descends on Austin, Texas every March.
What will it mean to eat food in the future? What will food look and taste like? Will things like fake meat, Soylent, and Quorn, replace the Sunday dinner of rump roast, potatoes, and collard greens? And if they do, would that really be so bad?
In this episode Raj Patel argues the case for Soylent green, Rebecca McInroy asks if GMOs are going to kill us all, and Tom Philpott illustrates what’s really at steak, and in your steak, when talking antibiotics.
Enjoy the show!
