Midday: Omnivores Dilemma author Michael Pollan

Posted at 8:48 AM on June 7, 2007 by Bill Wareham (5 Comments)

At 11 a.m., a Twin Cities speech by Michael Pollan, author of the best-selling book The Omnivore's Dilemma. He spoke about our system of food production and distribution at a Public Policy Program held this spring at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska.

I caught a little bit of the mid day show featuring Michael Pollan's speech. It was very interesting.

Is there a way to download an MP3 of the program?

You can't download it (yet), but you can stream it on your computer via the audio link on this page.

My husband heard a program on MPR last week in which the topic of grass farming and "It all starts with grass" was addressed. The author interviewed is a NY Times writer. He didn't get the name of the author or the book. Is Michael Pollan the correct author? Is the book Omnivores Dilemma? He would like the book, and I would like to surprise him with it!

Thank you!

you mentioned it can't be downloaded YET... does that mean at sometime it will be...being tethered to my radio or computer is difficult at times...but your programing is a must anywhere... please explain when and how programs will be able to be downloaded and in what format. thank you...a member.

My goal is to get more MPR News programming available on demand, specifically in a downloadable format like mp3. Can't say when that will happen. Midday is high on my list, and I'd also like to make reporter stories and host interviews available. In theory, you'd be able to subscribe to most everything we produce, download it to your mp3 player and listen at your leisure.
