This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides “celebrates” Columbus Day by talking about the modern day Columbian Exchange: foodiness. Instead of smallpox, we have diabetes. Leave it to the Europeans to take corn from Native Americans and turn it into high fructose corn syrup and pour it down the throats of the masses! Tune into this episode to hear Erica Wides talk about her experiences taking food science classes, and how she felt she was being primed to be a secret agent for Foodiness, Inc. Hear about some of the wacky food inventions that Erica encountered such as pre-flavored grilling skewers or spinach powder. Look out! You almost fell down the foodiness rabbit hole! Check out this episode of Let’s Get Real! This episode has been brought to you by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

“The foodiness megacorporations are all on the prowl and they’re all looking for real chefs these days because they want chefs to help them make foodiness that looks more like real food.” [22:09] — Erica Wides on Let’s Get Real
