Fresh corn – especially corn eaten right off the cob – just screams “summer” for me. On this podcast, I talked with produce expert James Parker to find out about the different varieties of corn, how to pick the best and how to cook those yummy ears. Of course, how you eat your corn on the cob is a personal choice – do you eat horizontally across the cob or bite around the cob in a circular pattern? Listen in and share your corn thoughts.

In a wide ranging interview posted to his blog Chews Wise, Samuel Fromartz, author of Organic, Inc: Natural Foods and How They Grew, talked to Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey about "the Wild Oats deal, rising food prices, the company's soon-to-be-launched meat ratings system, and the prospects for sustainable seafood." This is a great read for anyone interested in the natural foods industry and Whole Foods Market in particular.

Check out this 20 minute video of Mark Bittman's talk at the EG (Entertainment Gathering) Conference from TED. (TED - Technology, Entertainment, Design - has a lot of great stuff from a wide variety of thought leaders.) TED describes this piece as "a fiery and funny talk" where "New York Times food writer Mark Bittman weighs in on what's wrong with the way we eat now (too much meat, too few plants; too much fast food, too little home cooking), and why it's putting the entire planet at risk." Do you agree with Mark's suggestions for necessary changes?

I’ve been hearing some questions about whether it’s possible to get organic products from China, so I went to Margaret Wittenberg to find out the inside scoop.
