Diet for a hungry planet

I know I've "borrowed" the title of this post* -- I just can't recall from whom or from where. But I'm writing this on this fly because in less than 60 minutes Frances Moore Lappé will be the guest on CBC Radio's Sunday Edition and I wanted to give you advance notice. And now I realize that it's probably after-the-fact for listeners east of the Rockies. Well, not to despair, we should be able to download it as a podcast tomorrow. I will post a link as soon as it's up.
I also found some podcasts by the Lappés on iTunes University. I've downloaded them but haven't listened to them yet:
- Eat Grub! Putting Justice on Your Plate Anna Lappé Nicholas Talks (Duke University)
- Simply Delicious Frances Moore Lappé, Alice Waters The Aurora Forum at Stanford University (Stanford->Arts&Humanties->Culture)
- Choosing Courage in a Culture of Fear Frances Moore Lappé The Aurora Forum at Stanford University
Unfortunately I can't insert links to the podcasts, but you can find them with a few clicks:
(1) Go the iTunes store and simply enter "lappe" into the Search field (Anna and Frances are artists 147, 148 & 149); or
(2) Go to iTunes U. Select Duke University , then select Nicholas School of Environmental Science and the Nicholas Talks; Anna is artist 8.
(3) Select Stanford University and then from the offerings on the next page, select Aurora Forum. Browse the listings to find Frances' talks (11,36).
Addendum: I found the inspiration for this post's title: (1) a series on CBC' Radio's The Current and (2) Peter Menzel's book. Earlier this year I heard a few portions of the broadcast and viewed a few of the book's pages on a blog. Time now for a closer look and listen.
