There's a secrecy craze sweeping the nation right now, fueled by the animal-ag industry's deep lobbying pockets: bills pending in several states would criminalize whistleblowers and undercover investigators at animal facilities, towards the ignobal goal of protecting criminal abusers and mandating consumer ignorance. Cheryl Leahy (COK) and Mathew Dominguez (HSUS) join us for an in-depth discussion of what 'ag-gag' means, and why it matters -- and most importantly, what you can do to stop the madness!

This week we delve into why food tends to get a pass, from progressive thinkers -- and why it surely shouldn't! We also tackle the mysteries of the deep: how marine-life-under-cellophane (aka 'seafood') labels mislead consumers, and why it matters (hint: it really really really matters). Mediterranean diet advocates encourage fish-eating: so should we do it? Also, we have exciting Kickstarter news to report, some great new recipes, a cookbook review, and even (gasp) some sweetness and light from the food-news dispatch. Listen!
