Deconstructing Dinner: A farewell...for now! (includes update on eggs investigation)


This episode #193 marks the final broadcast of Deconstructing Dinner before we embark on a much-needed break.

Producer & Host Jon Steinman speaks about the need to step away from producing new shows and what future might lie ahead. Jon also shares some reflections on the past 5 years of producing this weekly one-hour radio show and podcast, and offers suggestions to those involved in the responsible food movement - a movement which this show has helped track its evolution and certainly one that this show has in many ways been a part of.

Also on the show - a brief update (regrettably brief!) on our September undercover investigation on a B.C. egg business who had been fraudulently marketing their product as being from their own farm when in fact the property on which the business operated was not a farm at all! It appears the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has vowed silence instead of transparency.

Editorial Notes: Thanks so much to Jon and the crew over at Deconstructing Dinner for all the hard work that they have done over the last five years raising awareness about the responsible food movement. Before we began publishing the show on EB they were a long-standing feature of Global Public Media. We wish them a good break and good luck in the future. Please consider going over to their website and giving them some support. -KS
