Communicating with bees, food in the early city, GMOs, and the Maialata

We'll have a short recap of GMO legislation in Oregon and beyond.  We'll also hear from Jacqueline Freeman, author of "The Song of Increase: Returning to our Sacred Partnership with Honeybees" about communication with bees.  Ever wonder what food in the early city was like?  We have an interview with Catherine McNeur about her book "Taming Manhattan: Environmental Battles in the Antebellum City."  We'll end with a conversation with Cathy Whims, executive chef at Nostrana, about the tradition of the Maialata, where communities in Italy gather to process pigs into food for the next year.
