Blog: just-food experts get chatty

Catherine Sleep | 6 September 2006

Two of just-food’s regular contributors were recently interviewed on The Politics of Food, Joy Hought’s Thursday broadcast on independent radio channel KUCI, the self-proclaimed “last bastion against crappy, sound-alike radio in Orange County”. So there.

Joy is the brain behind hereticfig, one of the more thoughtful food blogs around, so I was hoping for a well-informed interview and I wasn’t disappointed. Bernice has strong views about honest advertising, especially when it comes to marketing food to children. She regularly shares her views on the marketing tactics of the multinationals with the just-food audience, but can you imagine her with half an hour of airtime….?

Bernice waxed lyrical about the need to educate kids about food and cooking, although a personal highlight for me was her having to explain what chocolate buttons are. Yes, that’s a hint that Cadbury’s Get Active! scheme got a mention. You can listen to the whole broadcast by following the links below.

Meanwhile Keith Nuthall, just-food’s WTO expert, was also invited on the programme to speak about the collapse of the Doha round of talks. The world's multilateral food trading system today stands not so much at a crossroads as at an incredibly complicated spaghetti junction with no clear exits, so it was useful to hear Keith in demystification mode.

You can listen to both broadcasts by following the links below.
