This week on What Doesn’t Kill You, host Katy Keiffer is speaking with Ted Genoways who is the editor-at-large at OnEarth, the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Fund. He has also contributed to a number of other magazines such as The Atlantic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Harper’s, Mother Jones, The New Republic, and Outside. His new book, “The Chain: Farm, Factory, and the Fate of Our Food” was published this month by Harper Collins and joins Katy in a discussion on labor concerning large companies like Hormel. Complete with thoughts on union busting and the rise of undocumented workers, Ted goes on to explain how even the ACLU came to be involved with the Hormel ordeal. Tune in to hear highlights from Ted’s book. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.
