Pirate radio founders in Italy, Nonnas in Staten Island, pig farmers in coastal Georgia, and seaweed entrepreneurs in Maine – these are just a few of the characters you'll meet in this week's episode. We look at a word that's central to our mission – HERITAGE – by exploring flavor preservation, family recipes, and both land-based and aquatic farming practices. Our food heritage is something to be celebrated and fiercely protected, and it takes a diverse group of people to give our culinary history the recognition it deserves.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.

It's HRN's annual summer fund drive, this is when we turn to our listeners and ask that you make a donation to help ensure a bright future for food radio.
