Today we’re taking a step back in time and exploring some interesting food trends from the past. Every so often, there is a massive migration period for herring towards the Swedish West Coast. These seasonal migrations allow for coastal fishing of herring that is much more abundant than regular methods. During one Herring Period of the 18th century…
 
When most of us think about peanut butter and jelly, we’re immediately filled with memories of childhood lunches. And while it’s certainly a nostalgic snack, at its core it is a healthy snack – when it’s made from whole ingredients! So how can you make a nut butter and jam snack that’s not only tasty but also good for you? My guest this week, Jeff …
 
When the pandemic started, I put out a call to anyone who had their conference or public talk or event cancelled, to see if they wanted to share some of the foundational ideas from those events in podcast form. My guest this week is Simone Johnson, who took me up on the offer after her guest talk on fermentation was cancelled. Something I always ma…
 
We’re living in a very surreal and increasingly digital world these days, and I don’t know about you all, but I’m finding myself taking a step back each day trying to figure out what this means for how our society is shaped and what our futures will look like. We see a heightened presence of fitness and wellness apps, with extended free trials, or …
 
How many of you have started trying your hand at baking bread since the start of the pandemic? With our lives totally upheaved and our work-related identities really being called into question, it’s allowing us some time to explore different sides of ourselves, and sometimes connect more deeply with our communities even in isolation. My guest this …
 
With the pandemic, we’re seeing much more clearly how food and beverage companies and restaurants treat their employees… and unfortunately in some cases, we’re seeing that many operate under traditional bottom line approaches, without building inclusivity and care into the foundations of their work. My guest this week, Ryan Fortwendel, is someone w…
 
When we talk about food systems and eating experiences, we often are quick to bring up the ideas of exclusion – what we should remove or limit or restrict – through veganism, vegetarianism, paleo diets, carnivore diets, and more. My guest this week, Jordan Higgins, is one of the entrepreneurs of Higgins and Phillips Innovations, and is looking to c…
 
So this week is particularly heavy, and I don’t feel right starting out this episode without addressing that. I have been thinking for a long time about the role of podcasting in pandemics, and whether it’s silly to produce and share episodes when everyone’s minds are riddled with panic, fear, and an ever-growing awareness of just how much food you…
 
Do you ever wonder how scientists come to understand what we ate in the past, or how they know what types of farming and irrigation methods were used?

Today I’m chatting with A…

When you think about dirt, what comes to mind? Probably not eating it! We teach our children not to put dirt in their mouths from the moment they start crawling away from us in infancy, and we throw insults like “eat dirt” at people when we want to really stick it to them. Yet… humans have eaten earth, on purpose, for more than 2300 years. Humans a…
 
Have you ever had just one of those days where everything felt like it was on fire, maybe literally in the world or metaphorically in your own career… and you just wanted a quick way to chill? If you stumbled across a pastel beverage in a convenience store that could offer you chill in a bottle… would you go for it? This week, we’re exploring the r…
 
When you think craft beer, what - or who - is most likely coming to mind? It's an industry that is so dominated by straight white dudes, but that doesn't mean it needs to stay that way. My guest this week, Ren Navarro, is working on improving diversity in beer. Navarro is one of the most well-respected members of the Ontario beer industry, and has …

This week’s episode is a bit of a dream come true in that sense for me! I’m speaking with Charlotte Druckman all about her newest book, Women on Food. Based out of New York City, Charlotte is a…
 
With the holiday season in full swing, I always like to come back to conversations about body image and disordered eating… because holidays are really intense for a lot of people, myself included, and we are often face to face with anxieties about ourselves, our families, and sometimes with our relationship to food. My guest this week is Jennifer R…

Sometimes the stories we want to share through AnthroDish are bigger that just one person's perspective.

If you’ve been listening to AnthroDish for a while, you know I get really critical when it comes to the idea of what we define “health” as or how we define and understand “diets” – and this week’s guest, Kaila Tova, explores the depths of how healthism and fitness can blend into harmful disordered eating behaviours, like orthorexia. After recoverin…
 
We’re all at this point used to food terms being thrown around in the grocery store – organic, GMO-free, natural, superfoods… but what do these really mean?

As the conversations and concern about the climate crisis continue to grow on a global scale, can be overwhelming on a personal level thinking about solutions.
