  • The Science of Local Food

    Locavorism is all the rage these days, but does science back it up? Is local food more nutritious? Can it improve our environment? And does it even taste better? This June, we invited a panel of experts from the New York area to find out.

    This podcast was recorded live at "The Science of Local Food" event on June 26, 2012, a part of the River to River Festival. A big thanks goes out to the South Street Seaport Museum for hosting.

    Brought to you by Science & the City and the Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science.
