Michael Pollan in the Washington Post

An interview, broken into segments

November 14, 2011

The Washington Post food blogger Tim Carman recently had a long chat with Michael Pollan about food politics; the conversation has been broken down into three chats, posted separately.

The first segment includes a half-facetious discussion of who the Steve Jobs of agriculture might be: Joel Salatin? Will Allen? The second segment covers Michelle Obama, public health, and how junk food is marketed to children. And the third and final segment discusses that old Pollan canard: elitism.
