Listen: Food Is the New Rock, You Eat What You Are

Food Is the New Rock has a new podcast, and a recent episode features L.A.'s Jonathan Gold. There's a lot of fun food- and music-related chit chat, but the highlight has got to be when Gold mentions that his favorite blog in the world is The Hairpin.

WNYC and APM's Freakonomics Radio recently presented "You Eat What You Are." (part 1, part 2), which explores how American food got bad, and is getting better. Host Stephen Dubner interviews Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, Tyler Cowen, and other about the definition of "bad food" and, perhaps more interestingly, the pitfalls of locavorism.
