For Made in America Week on BTR, we talk the politics of food with Marion Nestle, the Paulette Goddard Professor in the Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health — a department she chaired from 1988 to 2003 — and Professor of Sociology at New York University. She is the author of several books on food safety and policy including Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health and her latest, Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics.

And later, we bring you interview footage Matt conducted to write his story on the frontage of BreakThru today on Cincinnati’s King Records, a legendary independent record label that operated from the late ’30s to the early ’70s. King was the home of such ubiquitous hits as “The Twist” as well as the hardest working man in show business, James Brown. Today’s show features interviews with Darren Blasé, owner of Cincinnati record store and independent label, Shake It Records, as well as John Hartley Fox, the author of The King of Queen City, a history on King Records for the Illinois University Press.
