Had the pleasure recently to sit down with my friend and colleague, the inimitable Devon Sampson, on Delicious Revolution, the podcast hosted by him and Chelsea Wills. Recorded in the cafeteria of the HQ of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations during a respite from the recent 2nd International Symposium on Agroecology, Devon and I discuss Belo Horizonte, #btehbook, social movements, tactics, strategy, governance, and as Devon writes:
the need to build trust between groups and find common agendas so that we as a movement are ready when political windows open for radical change.
Need further inspiration? Andy Larsen, co-host of Ann and Andy Dig, seemed to like the episode:
SMART PEOPLE ON PODCASTS!
While you’re waiting for Ann and I to get back to our bullshit, check out this talk with Jahi Chappell about food programs in Brazil! I just read Jahi’s book “Beginning To End Hunger: Food And The Environment In Belo Horizonte, Brazil, And Beyond” and it’s a great, detailed deep dive on the subject.
Of course, Andy (and Ann) are personal friends. But still: he used ALL CAPS. It MUST be good! So, find my Delicious Revolution episode here.
And if you want more BTEH goodness, you might also go back to the Real Foods Reads interview I did with Anna Lappé a couple weeks ago!
Lastly, stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks about possible book touring. And as always, you can reach me at my Contact Page if you’d like to propose an appearance (or for any other BTEH related queries!)
