Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Welcome to WMNF's Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. This Friday night a highly-praised new documentary Food, Inc. appears at the Tampa Theatre. It's all about the food industry.
(From the film's website) "In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment."
We're joined now by Food, Inc.'s producer Elise Pearlstein.
