Barton Seaver: Kitchen Table Environmentalism & Public Health

Barton Seaver's path to becoming an environmental advocate cut through the kitchens of Washington's restaurants. As a chef, he pioneered programs to prepare food in sustainable ways - and challenged eaters to learn more about where their meals come from. These days, Seaver's path goes through academia, where he's working through the Harvard School of Public Health to help people understand these issues in human terms. He joins us in the studio to explore the relationship between food, public health and the environment - and all the things we can learn every time we grill out in the backyard.
