This week on Sharp & Hot host Emily Peterson is sitting down with Heritage Radio Network Founder Patrick Martins talking about his book, "The Carnivore's Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat," co-written by Mike Edison. The book features fifty ways to be an enlightened carnivore, while taking better care of our planet and ourselves. We have evolved as meat eaters, proclaims Patrick, 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. Patrick cuts through organized zealotry and the misleading jargon of food labeling to outline realistic steps everyone can take to be part of the sustainable-food movement. Patrick also talks about his fondness for heritage breeds, goat meat, and the start of Heritage Foods USA. Tune in to gain insight into Patrick's thinking on topics from parenting, slaughterhouses, to what we can actively do to make a difference. This program was brought to you by Heritage Radio Network.
"My only issue with vegetarians are the ones who say you shouldn't eat meat. You shouldn't!"
"Some billionaire just needs to build 4 slaughterhouses outside their city... and let the farmers come and charge them a per pound cost."
"Through fun and also fact this is the only book you need to read to have all those answers."
