This week on Straight, No Chaser, Katy Keiffer is joined by Michael Conard, the Assistant Director of the Urban Design Lab. Tune in for an intense discussion on re-imagining regional and nationalized food systems and implementing improved infrastructure into these systems. They also explore the links between food and health and the potential for venture capitalism in creating more regionalized food hubs. Hear about some of the change that could be possible with an overturn of many of the systems and political models when it comes to food in the United States. This episode was sponsored by Fairway Market.

“There people who are thinking about [venture capital]. It’s just beginning to be directed and invested. We’re working with people talking about regionalized food hubs attached to health

care facilities. ”
