Are You Going To Eat That? (R)

Do you clean your plate? Should you keep a chicken that's been in your freezer for 10 years? We visit farms, a meat processing plant, a compost heap, grocery stores and Kansas Citians' kitchens to explore the issue of food waste.

Guests:

  • Kris Husted, reporter, Harvest Public Media
  • Jena Roberts, vice president of business development, The National Food Lab
  • Karin Page, gleaning program director, After the Harvest KC
  • Peggy Lowe, reporter, Harvest Public Media
  • Cassandra Profita, reporter, Harvest Public Media

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
