On today’s episode of What Doesn’t Kill You, journalist Richard Manning shows the link between big agriculture and big money in politics. Manning is an environmental author and journalist, whose work has explored the enormous impact that agriculture has had on human civilization and evolution. One of the consequences of this reliance on a steady food supply is the issue of agricultural pollution – and whose responsibility it is to deal with it. But, as Manning discusses, political realities often present an obstacle to dealing with these mounting problems.


“Industrial agriculture is like a corporation, it’s not a community at all.” [11:00] – Richard Manning
