An informative, if lopsided, look into crops
This podcast is best targeted to those who want to learn more about the world’s most used and useful plants. It’s concise, informative, and fun. I would caution the listener to be aware of blind spots in the presenter’s viewpoints. There is a strong bias here against monoculture and the selection of produce characteristics that ultimately lead toward commercial profitability. This is a complication issue, and I believe it does the truth some injustice to denigrate monoculture without exploring its reasons for existing. Like genetic modification of food, monoculture ultimately has lifted million — arguably billions! — out of poverty at the same time that it hurts biodiversity and creates vulnerabilities to crop failure. This double edged sword is a complex and interesting topic to delve into. But if we treat it as just a bad thing, we overlook it’s nuances, in particular, it’s benefit to humanity. So just know going in that such seemingly good or bad issues are more complex than they may seem at first, and this podcast may not explore the complexities of these topics while it’s guests lecture on the bad qualities of monoculture crops.
