The amazing and groundbreaking radio program Deconstructing Dinner is taking an “indefinite” break from its’ one hour weekly radio program. The main reason to discontinue the show seems to be that funding wasn’t sufficient, which is a shame. I became a regular listener of Deconstructing Dinner just over two years ago, but the program has been running from the Kootenay co-op radio station since 2005. Needless to say I have listened to almost every episode, and tried to donate as much as a student can…
Deconstructing Dinner tackled the issue of Food Security/Systems with no filters, and was a massive part of British Columbia’s and Canada’s local and slow food movement. Much respect goes out to Jon Steinman the creator and host of the show, a graduate of the University of Guelph and one of Canada’s premier food activists.
You can download all of Deconstructing Dinner’s episodes as podcasts or simply go to their webpage and listen to episodes there. I highly recommend going back and listening to them as they are a wealth of information and relevant at any time.
My top 3 episodes (although it’s really hard to pick just three).
"THE DISAPPEARANCE OF OMEGA-3s"
"EXPLORING ETHNOBIOLOGY I: PRESERVING TRADITIONAL FOODWAYS AMONG INDIGENOUS YOUTH”
"FERMENTING REVOLUTION / SOIL MATTERS CSA I"
