Radio Safron FoerIs clinging to habits and cravings destroying our future? An outspoken critic of factory farming and animal-centric diets, Jonathan Safran Foer writes that stopping climate change begins with a close look at what we eat — and don’t eat — at home for breakfast.

Guests:
Jonathan Safran Foer - Author, We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast

Helene York - Chief Procurement Officer, Guckenheimer Enterprises; Faculty Member, Food Business School, Culinary Institute of America
