In their new books, journalists Marie Mutsuki Mockett (American Harvest) and Tom Philpott (Perilous Bounty) peel back the curtain on the American agricultural industry. Mockett’s journey across America with a group of wheat harvesters shows where our food really comes from, and Philpott explores how the climate crisis threatens food’s future. Join them as they discuss the food that sustains us, the people who produce it, the politics of food, and how the industry can adapt to a changing planet.
