A Conversation with Jeremy Cherfas on the Eat This Podcast
I spent part of last week in Rome at a conference organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. While there, I sat down with Jeremy Cherfas, who is based in Rome, from where he produces and hosts the Eat This podcast.
Over the course an hour, and my jet-lagged state notwithstanding, we chatted about a number of topics I have been working on these past few years: food prices spikes and food riots, commodity speculators and food crises, quinoa consumption in rich countries and rural livelihoods in the Andes, etc. More broadly, the conversation was about agricultural economics, and what agricultural economists do.
