It seems that my educational experience this summer will never end. Three more exams to go before I move to summer school and get to do more work – yeeha! Thank goodness I am studying a topic that interests me; otherwise, this would be even more of a grueling experience.
But for those of you on summer break, who are looking for meaningful entertainment instead of the latest chicklit novel, I have another suggestion – how about listening to food experts such as Michael Pollan, Raj Patel and others explain their views on the economics and politics of food?
UC Berkeley last year hosted a series of talks – serious, one to one-and-a-half hour talks in a semi-lecture style – for students and the general public called “Edible Education”, and they are all uploaded onto Youtube. The first one in the series? Michael Pollan talking about “Eating Oil, Eating Sunshine”.
