This week on a special Super Tuesday-themed Meat and Three, we get ready for a big day at the polls by looking at the intersecting worlds of food and electoral politics. We’ll bring you everywhere from Australian voting booths with a special sizzle, to a diner in New Hampshire that regularly plays host to future presidents.
First, Rowan O’Connell-Gates takes us to the campaign trail with a story about candidates’ attempts to woo voters with food. Kevin Chang Barnum explores Australia’s voting laws and how they created a tradition known as democracy sausage. The Speakeasy host Sother Teague compares recent politics to the cultural climate that led to prohibition. Finally, Ruby Walsh explains the risks of eating in public as she examines how one photo derailed a British Labor Party leader’s career.
