I don't know about you, but I seem to be constantly having conversations about food. Alright, so maybe this doesn't come as a surprise considering that I work for a local food and agriculture organization and am a food writer.
Sometimes these conversations go great. Other times, not so much. In fact, it's not unusual for them to turn into a debate or "food fight". I'm guessing I'm not alone on this because we all have thoughts about food - we all eat, don't we? I've learned that food can be a very personal topic and having an effective conversation about it is not always easy.
That's why I appreciated the discussion on the Faith Middleton Show this week. Faith and psychologist Nancy Horn talk about how to tackle these tricky food conversations, whether they be with your partner, kids or friends and avoid a food fight. You can find the radio conversation here. You can just stream it, or do like I do and subscribe to the show's podcast. (A great, easy to use app for your phone or tablet to manage podcasts is BeyondPod.)
The Faith Middleton Show is a radio program on WNPR that is based in New Haven, CT. I used to listen to it when I lived down there and now access it through the WNPR website. Every Wednesday there are great food focused episodes called "The Food Schmooze". While you're at it, check out the other high quality WNPR programming like the Colin McEnroe Show.
