This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks takes on a solo show inspired by the recent profile of Vandana Shiva, international anti-GMO and anti-globalization advocate, in the New Yorker written by Michael Specter. In response to the piece, Erin previously spoke with the long time anti-GMO advocate Jim Gerritsen as well as reporter Tom Philpott to expand on this issue. In the second half of the show, Erin talks about a situation concerning an invite from Conde Nast Media Group to take part in a video series focused on food topics. What was not widely mentioned was that Monsanto was underwriting for the project. Seemingly a conflict of interest between the discussion topic and underwriter, Erin shares her thoughts on the ordeal and how such media outlets should be more transparent. This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"The really big problem is that nowhere... was it made clear that the project was being underwritten by an organization that is such a divisive player in the food world. Nowhere did it say that Conde Nast was working with Monsanto on this cool food project." [24:00]

It's that time of year again - students are headed back to school! Linda Pelaccio gets in the spirit on a academic themed episode of A Taste of the Past with guest Ken Albala, Professor of History at the University of the Pacific, USA. He is the author or editor of 17 books including Eating Right in the Renaissance, The Banquet and Beans: A History. He has also coauthored two cookbooks, The Lost Art of Real Cooking and The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home. With the proliferation of food history courses and avid interest among scholars and the general public, the need for a solid comprehensive collection of key primary texts about food of the past is urgent. His latest book, The Food History Reader, is that collection. Tune in as he urges researchers to focus on primary sources and gives listeners some insights into the world of food history. This program was brought to you by Fairway Market.

"I think we need fewer encyclopedias and more original research and it won't happen unless a generation of students is raised on the original sources and not the rehashes of information." [12:00]

"People eat certain things as expressions of who they are and who they want to be." [16:00]
