  1. The podcast did a barley okay review of the book and touched only on the basic kinds of “common sense” about processed foods. It would have been nice if he delved a bit further to entice to audience on the complex problems and creative ways the industry tricks the target audience from the book’s perspective.

    • Yes, my intent with the podcasts is not so much to review a book, as to discuss what I view to be the most interesting ideas in it. In this case, I might have chosen to focus on the author’s argument that processed food companies are duping us into eating their food (as you suggest), but I did not find the author’s argument here at all compelling, and so chose to focus on something else instead. Hope that helps.

      Cheers,
      Aaron
