Event description: 
Join us for an evening conversation with Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley, co-hosts of the award-winning podcast: Gastropod. Gastropod, now in its thirteenth season, explores the science and history of the things we eat, from the disputed origins of the “French” fry to the turbid world of strawberry fumigation. Using the natural triad of food, science, and history as our lenses, we’ll learn more about how podcasting can bring out the best in audio storytelling. 
Cynthia Graber has written about food and agriculture news for over 15 years, with pieces in Fast Company, the BBC, Slate, and PRI. Her reporting has won awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Society of Environmental Journalists, and the International Institute of Physics. 
Nicola Twilley runs the blog Edible Geography, and is a contributing writer for The New Yorker. Her writing also appears in the Atlantic and the New York Times Magazine, and she will be publishing a book on refrigeration. 
Chewing the Fat is the Yale Sustainable Food Program’s long-standing speaker series. All events are free and open to the public. This event is hosted in collaboration with the Poynter Fellowship in Journalism, and the Yale Department of History of Science and Medicine.
