Author Michael Pollan offer us an amusing, engaging, very funny and informative presentation in this speech he gave at Williams College in 2007.

It's a overview of Michael Pollan's work, mostly covering territory explored in The Omnivore's Dilemma (2006). Almost everything about America's food production and consumption is crazy, upside down and the consequences are terrible.

At about 13 minutes in, there is a hilarious rant on corn - how it permeates everything! And it's not only in our food, not only in ethanol...everyday items you never thought of can be traced back to corn! The supermarket ITSELF... yes, building materials!

This video can be enjoyed as a radio show, as there is no visual presentation. Just turn it on and laugh, learn and be enriched by this amazing material.
