With the renegotiation of NAFTA currently underway and a new trade agreement close to being finalized, host Jenna Liut welcomes author Alyshia Galvez to the show to discuss the repercussions the deal has had on the U.S. and Mexican food system. Alyshia is a Professor of Latin American and Latino studies at Lehman College of the City University of New York, and she is also the author of the recently published book, “Eating NAFTA: Trade, Food Policies and the Destruction of Mexico,” where she examines the effects of free-trade policies on Mexican food production and traditional culture as well as the collective health of the Mexican people.
