Evan Kleiman in conversation with Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser

On February 9, 2011, as part of its Visions and Voices initiative, the University of Souther California hosted a conversation among Evan Kleiman, Michael Pollan, and Eric Schlosser that covered a number of perennial and current food issues: legislation including the recently passed Food Safety Act, the national school lunch program, and the upcoming Farm Bill; the role of Walmart and the increasing influence of major retailers on what’s grown, how it’s processed, and how it’s priced and distributed; GMOs and related regulations; and the ability of individual consumers to bring about change in our food system.

KCRW is now making available the video of the complete event (just over 90 minutes in length), which we’ve embedded below.
