On the first episode of Taste Talks host Sarah Zorin interviews the Vice Chair of Slow Food NYC Jennifer Goggin, and Maxine Bedat, the founder of Zady and the Bootstrap Project. The discussion revolves around the practices of slow food and slow fashion, and how these practices can give us a better understanding of how and where the products we use everyday were made. This program was brought to you by Escape Maker.
