As the climate warms and the population grows, big changes are coming to what we eat and to food labor. In this episode, we visit a food expo that aims to make bugs palatable to Americans; FoodBytes, a pitch competition for the latest food technology, including a robotic kitchen arm; and a Manhattan sausage eating contest. Reporter Max Zahn explains how a new law in New York City to help fast food workers is falling short, and guest David Emmanuel of freegan.info tells us how you can eat for free in New York City and fight food waste in the process. Finally, folk artist Kelly Quigley sings songs from her new album.
