Marion Nestle is arguably one of the world’s most important voices regarding food policy, politics, safety, and study. She founded the nation’s first Food Studies program, at New York University, and has authored several seminal books including Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health, What To Eat, Safe Food: The Politics of Food Safety, Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat, and more.
Now she’s published a “foodoir” about how she came to late-in-life success worldwide. It's called Slow Cooked: An Unexpected Life in Food Politics. Clark Wolf digs into this fascinating story as a preview to her visit to Sonoma County later in the fall.
Connor Murphy is the recently appointed Farm Manager at what has been called the “Nation’s Best College Farm” providing a home for its many academic and community programs.

We talk food, land, farming, and stewardship plus learn a bit more about what it takes to achieve this sort of position.
