In this episode of Let's Get Real, our hostess Erica Wides discusses how 'foodiness' is infantilizing our society. Tune in to hear about how processed food is removing decision-making from adults and creating a cycle of dependency. Erica touches on a range of subjects such as factory farming, technology and social media, and contemporary politics. This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"There's so much that infantilizes us, from devices that tell us where we are, to social media that tells us who our friends are, to screens everywhere blaring corporate progaganda at us non-stop. And it's also comfortable and convenient and we're buying it- hook, line, and sinker." --Erica Wides on Let's Get Real

Let's Get Real is back after a short 2-week hiatus and Erica Wides is here to tell you why real food is already "smart" and only foodiness advertises itself as smart. Find out about the origins of engineered foods and why we always assume that food can be improved upon. From science fiction dreams to realistic let downs, learn about the differences between what's real, what's fake and what's just plain stupid. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"Corn was completely engineered by humans to become what it was - an ancient power empire building food staple - to its current incarnation as a vehicle of our human demise."

"The more 'smart' food you eat, the dumber you get!"

"Smart food is to real food as a Real Housewife is to Meryl Streep"

If there's one thing Erica Wides wants you to know this week it's that bacon doesn't come from birds. It can't. This week Let's Get Real breaks down the food simulacra of 'turkey bacon'. Not only is the "Franken-Foodiness" of turkey bacon and other products (see: Egg Whackers) not making you healthier, it's probably going to make you more sick or kill you in the end. Tune in and find out why eating real is just better, if not tastier! This episode is sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"People forget that bacon isn't a product. It's part of a pig . . . and bacon was traditionally a survival cut for poor people."
