This week on Eating Disorder hosts Crazy Legs Conti and The Rev Spyro welcome back Chef Paul Gerard to the show! Sitting down with Heritage Radio Network Founder Patrick Martins and his co-author Mike Edison, plus special guest Kelly Jones of The Spotted Pig, the group talks about everything from hot dogs to Mike’s intriguing writing career. After the break, the guys chat about Patrick and Mike’s book, “The Carnivore’s Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat” and discuss ways to be an enlightened carnivore, while taking better care of our planet and ourselves. We have evolved as meat eaters, proclaims Patrick and Mike, and it’s futile to deny it. But, given the destructive forces of the fast-food industry and factory farming, we need to make smart, informed choices about the food we eat and where it comes from. The guests cuts through the organized zealotry and the misleading jargon of food labeling to outline realistic steps everyone can take to be part of the sustainable-food movement. Tune in for other antics and fun! This program was brought to you by Roberta’s Pizza.
