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]
