Sound Bites: Episode 88 – Poultry Fair Share Act | Saving Bees | All About Fermentation

Bees and Insecticides

Bees and Insecticides

On Sound Bites, we discuss the Poultry Fair Share Act, which proposes that large agribusinesses such as Perdue and Tyson be charged a fee per head for chickens grown on the farms contracted with them, to invest in the health of the Chesapeake Bay. Our guests will include: Representative Michael McDermott, Republican member of the Maryland House of Delegates representing District 38B; and Scott Edwards, Co-Director of Food and Water Watch‘s Food and Water Justice Project.

Then, we return to the topic of bees and pesticides, in light of today’s New York Times full-page ad advocating for passing of the “Saving America’s Pollinators Act.” Our guest will be Jay Feldman, Executive Director and co-Founder of Beyond Pesticides.

We close Sound Bites with Sandor Ellix Katz, a fermentation revivalist and author of Wild Fermentation, The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved, and The Art of Fermentation. Katz will talk about the history and benefits of fermentation, and share a fermented recipe with us!
