Fall 2012 Episodes
What to eat? Where does our food come from? What are its true costs? And is there enough of it to feed the whole world? Our food gives us a lot to think about.
In Latitudes’ Global Buffet special, we give you a taste of these issues. We’ll find out why on the same planet a billion people are hungry, and more than a billion people are overweight. We’ll look at how food can cause conflicts, and also be a source of healing. And we’ll explore the future of food—from new models of production, to using sound to change how food tastes.
Moving up, moving home, and moving your body.
In Latitudes’ On the Move special we’ll sample many varieties of mobility. From self-deportation to dance, we’ll meet people who’ve spent their lives in motion. We’ll look at some of the ways people adapt to their new homes. We’ll hear from people escaping from, and commuting to, conflict zones. And we’ll listen to the sounds of things in motion—from guitar strings, to kite strings, to some feathered friends.
