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.
Poppy would be proud! Speaking of my beloved grandfather, it is he who inspired this obsessive love of interviewing folks and recording their stories. See my “Racing and Recording Against Time” essay here.

A Taste of Southeast Asia

Red Curry Chicken, Green Papaya Salad, Peking Duck and Pho. We had this Asian feast tonight for just $7. The catch? The meal was served in an OSU dining hall, to celebrate the university’s International Education Week.

The meal wasn’t quite restaurant-quality or perfectly authentic, but it was well worth the $7. The best part? The feast included full-size Vietnamese coffees, made with local Allann Bros. Coffee and condensed milk. The worst part? We weren’t allowed to go back for seconds.
