Interview with author Michael Pollan
Michael Pollan considers himself a writer, a professor and eater.
But some would also call him a food activist. The author of books like The Ominvore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food, Pollan is known for his vivid critiques of industrial agriculture and the modern American diet.
He recently spoke with St. Louis Public Radio’s Véronique LaCapra about his views on food and agriculture – starting with what he sees as a healthy diet.
