P.I.D. Radio 5/11/08: Katie Thompson & Alan Kluis — Agroterror and Our Food Supply



MOST of us modern city dwellers take our food supply for granted. Hungry? You can run out to the 24-hour supermarket or fast food joint, call out for a pizza, or even stop by your local gas station, which probably does a healthy side business in snacks and six-packs. In fact, it’s hard to imagine an American city full of places with things to eat.

But it’s not quite as sure a thing as all that. There are very plausible scenarios that could result in a massive disruption of the very vulnerable chain that leads from the farm to your fork.

Agroterror expert Katie Thompson, author of the thriller Deadstock, and commodities trader Alan Kluis talk about the security of our food supply.
