Righteous Porkchop: Finding Good Food Beyond Factory Farms

Nicolette Hahn Niman was an environmental lawyer when Bobby Kennedy, Jr. asked her to look into hog manure pollution.  Then Nicolette discovered the factory farm industry, and how big business abused hogs, poultry, and cows.  She also found farms that ran ethical, sustainable operations, and that view on food changed her life. 

Nicolette joins us to talk about America's reliance on factory farms, how to improve conditions for animals, and what we can do to move to a healthier, sustainable diet.
