On today’s episode, we welcome Stephen A. Satterfield — founder of the newly launched Whetstone Magazine, digital media producer, food writer, poet, ATLien and “the other Steven/Stephen Satterfield” — as we wrap up Food Book Fair 2017. We recap all the Fair happenings (including a roundtable on diversifying food media where Stephen was a featured speaker), and talk about the independent publishing hustle, #foodieodicals, reading while traveling, and wine.

“A lot of place and processes that we are unfamiliar with are imperfect, certainly, but we are also imperfect, and I think learning more about different political infrastructures, different challenges that people have faced in modern and deeper history, really helps me have more empathy for the world, for our nation and for many nations, because people suffer everywhere.” – Stephen A. Satterfield
