Michael Pollan InterviewSeveral weeks back I posted a piece on Michael Pollan's new book, Michael Pollan on Becoming Responsible Eaters. The book is called The Omnivore's Dilemma, and I still don't have a copy of it. However, after reading this interview at Truthdig., I am more determined than ever to hie myself to a bookstore and purchase it for my roadbook on the next trip to Albuquerque. (The next and final, I hasten to add.) From the intro to the interview:
Truthdig managing editor Blair Golson recently spoke with Pollan from his home in Northern California, where he is the Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. He discussed how the omnivore’s dilemma had returned in the unlikeliest of places; the truth about so-called “free range” chickens; and how in the world food manufacturers can get away with labels that read: “This product may contain one or more of the following....” (Truthdig interview with Michael Pollan on his new book, The Omnivore's Dilemma.)Pollan thinks that we have a national eating disorder here in the land of plenty, and he proceeds to skewer the food industry for encouraging it. Tankwoman, my foodie friend, I think you also might enjoy this one.
