Timothy A. Wise is a Senior Advisor at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP), where his work focuses on the future of food. He is the author of Eating Tomorrow: Agribusiness, Family Farmers, and the Battle for the Future of Food (The New Press). Recording in the age of social distancing means this episode was recorded in a Zoom session, not in a studio. We hope to work with our studio friends again soon.
Tim is also a senior researcher fellow at Tufts University’s Global Development and Environmental Institute and an advisor at the Small Planet Institute, where he previously directed its Land and Food Rights Program.
We’ve long wanted to do an episode at Future of Food about where to get good information about food and the climate crisis. We’ve wanted to identify which organizations might be giving us misleading information about food and climate. My interview with Tim is a first step toward understanding who controls what you know about the food you eat. Buy his book Eating Tomorrow.
