What is cellular agriculture, and why would anyone want to “brew” meat? We asked these questions and many others of Meera Zassenhaus—Communications and Media Manager at New Harvest, an organization promoting cellular agriculture, or growing tissue in a lab—and Garrett Broad, a professor at Fordham who studies what consumers think about different kinds of agricultural practices. We talk about everything from Taco Bell to the future of St. Louis, and from meat and nationalism to whether animal-free meat will be kosher. We also talk about the fact that cellular agriculture products may not hit the shelves for years. This episode comes back to our recurring themes of agriculture’s effect on the climate, and of what type of organization—corporate or nonprofit, urban or rural—has what kind of effect on our food system.
