Are We Alone? - Encore presentation available February 25, 2008: "The End of Food"
Do you find eating tiresome? Is taking time to chew taking too big a bite out of your productivity? Well, you can soon say goodbye to the burden of beefy burgers and chlorophyll-ridden lettuce - you'll be able to pop a pill for all your nutritional needs! As much as you may find this too much to swallow, what we call "food" is changing. Indeed, you might not recognize the dinner of the future if it landed on your plate today. In this hour, a look at high and low-tech visions of dinner time... whether E.T. would ever get a hankering to snack on Homo sapiens... what percentage of a Twinkie is mined... and growing meat in the lab. Plus, food fights of the past and future. Guests:
- Steve Ettlinger - author of Twinkie Deconstructed: My Journey to Discover How the Ingredients Found in Processed Foods Are Grown, Mined (Yes, Mined), and Manipulated Into What America Eats
- Warren Belasco - Professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland, and author of Meals To Come
- Jason Matheny - Director of New Harvest, a non-profit which funds research on in-vitro meat
- Tori Hoehler - astrobiology researcher at NASA Ames Research Center
