Butchery: New Cuts, Cattle Ranchers, and Vegetable Charcuterie

Whether it’s for a Rosh Hashanah brisket or an end-of-summer barbecue, more and more people are buying meat from local suppliers. This week on Meat and Three, we spotlight the people who prepare our meat before it reaches our plates. We hear from butchers who are working to introduce consumers to new cuts and create more localized food supply chains. We investigate an innovation in retail that allows for socially distant shopping and we explore the staggering distances some small meat producers have to travel to reach a slaughterhouse. Plus we hear from one master of charcuterie who isn’t using meat at all.

Screens: A Virtual Gateway to Food

On this week's episode of Meat and Three, we explore what happens when food is consumed through a screen. From a simple TV or computer monitor to the more complex VR goggles, the sensory experience of food is fundamentally shifted with the mediation of a virtual barrier. Kat Johnson first ponders the significance (or lack thereof) of fruit cameos on cable news. Next, Tash Kimmel looks at how urban foraging is aided through a virtual platform. We then move to the world of virtual reality. Emily Kunkel examines how VR can be used to unlock new therapeutic and utilitarian applications of food, and Dylan Heuer talks with Jenny Dorsey about how she uses VR to bring political and metaphorical meaning to the dinner party format.

School Lunch in the Age of Social Distancing

On this week's episode of Meat and Three, we are heading back to school. This year, the first day at school looks a lot different. From daycares to universities, every institution is operating under a different model – and that includes their plans for how students will eat. We bring you reports from cafeterias, take a look at how schools are supporting students who require subsidized lunch, and explore some tips for teaching young kids about nutrition from the comfort of their homes.

Delivery on Demand: How Convenience Became Necessity

From piping hot pizza to the satisfyingly boxed Chinese food, takeout and delivery have been a part of our lives for over a century. This year, however, delivery went from a convenience to a necessity. Covid-19 forced restaurants and supermarkets to adapt quickly. The country has been faced with the question: How can we get food safely and efficiently? One answer has been delivery. First, we take a step back and see how takeout and delivery have been at the forefront of social and economic change throughout the 20th century. We hear from one delivery driver about how his job has and hasn’t changed since the start of quarantine. Brandon Hoy, co-founder and COO of Roberta’s Pizza in Brooklyn, tells us how his restaurants are using new and innovative ways to streamline their delivery service amid Covid-19 safety regulations and staff shortages. Lastly, The Big Food Question helps us answer some of our most pressing pandemic-related delivery queries.

Delivery on Demand: How Convenience Became Necessity

Beans, Boycotts, and B-Corps: The Wild World of Food Branding

Over the summer, consumers called out food companies for racist imagery, names, and political positions. We saw a wave of hashtags, open letters, and boycotts – and in many cases, companies were pressured to make changes. For our season eight opener, we step into the tumultuous landscape of food branding. Two stories this week focus on how high schoolers are holding brands accountable –from a California teen who launched a boycott on Trader Joe’sto a group of students who stood up to Goya’s CEO after he praised President Trump. Then, we hear from companies who are carefully considering their brand and public image in a time when consumers are more tuned in than ever before, and aren’t afraid to call out problematic marketing.

Gen Z: Eaters and Drinkers and TikTok-ers, Oh MY!

This week, we’re focusing on the way that Generation Z relates to food and drink – especially as compared to their millennial predecessors. We observe some shifts in the ways food has been marketed in the past several decades and how Gen Zers’ views on alcohol consumption differ from older generations. We log on to the newest social media craze, TikTok, to see how food influencers are utilizing the app, and hear about the unique challenges facing three recent graduates of NYC’s Food and Finance High School.

Striving for Sovereignty in Indigenous Foodways

This week we share stories about indigenous foods and food sovereignty, here in the U.S. and across the globe. We’ll explore the richness of indigenous ingredients, the power of small-holder farms, and the importance of representation. First, we explore the lasting impact of settler colonialism on the food sovereignty of indigenous people in the U.S. Then, we look to Yolélé Foods to understand how they are expanding the market for fonio while benefiting farmers in West Africa, where the grain originates. We hear from The Sioux Chef, Sean Sherman about his foray into the world of indigenous culinary history and look at battle to identify Palestinian cuisine as just that, Palestinian.

Mutual Aid: Grassroots Relief Where it's Needed Most

This week, we have stories about mutual aid and the many shapes and sizes it can take. You’ll hear about how people are stepping up to feed their neighbors and keep community businesses afloat. What is mutual aid? Instead of taking a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to meeting people's needs, mutual aid enables community members to support one another directly. People work together on a grassroots level to provide resources like food, housing, and disaster relief to those in need. And mutual aid groups often go further –organizing themselves against systems that create unjust, inequitable conditions in the first place. During the course of the covid-19 pandemic, mutual aids groups have sprung up in communities across the country to support those who have lost their jobs and are grappling with financial instability and food insecurity.

Black-Owned Food Businesses: The Past, Present, and Future

During Covid-19, Black-owned businesses have been affected more than their white counterparts. Not only are they losing revenue because of the virus, but long standing issues like discriminatory lending practices and undercapitalization have made financial relief harder to come by. On this week's episode of Meat and Three, we look to leaders in the food world who are working to build a more inclusive industry. Stories come from our nation’s farmland, Fourth of July barbecues, a brewery and an app, we're exploring how to correct historical narratives, connect consumers with Black owned businesses in their neighborhoods, and build coalitions across the food world. Read more about The Counter's investigation about how the USDA distorted data to conceal decades of discrimination against Black farmers – mentioned in our final story this week. In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little re...
