I love the power of the unadorned human voice. And so I increasingly find myself gravitating towards radio, perhaps our most enduring, flexible and irrepressible forms of media that continues to thrive in this digital age. I spent two nights blindly fumbling through Pro Tools to sloppily edit my first produced radio piece on the new Emergency Food Pantry on-campus here at Oregon State. It will debut tomorrow during my second time co-hosting the monthly KBOO Food Show! Join me:
Announcing the April 15 KBOO FOOD SHOW: Meat Matters
(Tune in at 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST on 90.7 FM in Portland, 100.7 FM in Corvallis, Hood River at 91.9 FM or live-stream at http://kboo.fm/)
Maybe you already ate less meat for environmental, ethical or health reasons. Or has the recession made you forgo choice cuts of steak and lamb? Perhaps you’re a former vegetarian now at peace with consuming local, sustainably-raised meats (especially bacon)? Regardless, we know meat matters concern you, vegan and carnivore alike.
On Wednesday’s show we’ll hear from:
• Sasha Wizansky, the co-founder/editor of Meatpaper
, the visceral arts and ideas magazine that probes meat culture. Meatpaper is donating a free subscription to the third person to call (503) 231-8187 after the interview!
• A “State Meat Working Group”
formed to help more small farmers process their livestock, given Oregon’s shortage of USDA-inspected facilities.
• The new Emergency Food Pantry
at Oregon State University, the only known on-campus assistance site in Oregon where volunteers serve their fellow students.
• Miriam Widman’s 89-year-old mother, on working for butchers and the black market for meat during World War II.
