Episode 3: Food

In this episode of Collusion, we discuss the relationship between food, culture and power. The strong connection between food and identity means that it's been a frequent target of colonialist powers seeking to control different populations. We cover 'food neo-colonialism', looking at indigenous foods that have been co-opted by more powerful communities today, new food technologies aimed at addressing world hunger that sorely lack a holistic perspective of the role food plays in culture and food speculation.

Episode 2: Water

Episode 2 of Collusion: Water In the second episode of Collusion, we look at how control of water and irrigation technologies were used to exert power over different societies. We look into how the British used water and access to water to exert power over communities in former British India, access to water in Palestine, and the construction of the Belo Monte Dam in Brazil.

Episode 2: Water

Episode 1: Seeds

Episode 1 of Collusion: Seeds, technology, and power. In this first full episode of Collusion, we explore how control of seeds affected societies past, present and future. We start by looking at the cinchona tree, and how the cure for malaria- first discovered by the Quechua people- played a key role in facilitating the role of colonialists around the world. Then, we discuss biopiracy and bioprospecting, and community responses, and finally, the role of big seed companies in "seed laws" and privatisation of seeds in poorer countries.
