Ep. 173: The Hidden World of the Grocery Store

I am sure that everyone reading this has spent a significant amount of their life inside a grocery store.  So much so, that I bet you already take it for granted.  Take a second and consider the sheer abundance that exists within the four walls of your local supermarket.  How do they get a seemingly endless supply of shrimp, mayonnaise, cabbage, or ANY other random item that you can think of?  It turns out, there is a very dark underbelly to this miracle that is the modern grocery store.  From the exploitative trucking industry, to genuine slavery on fishing boats, someone is paying the price for your cheap and abundant groceries.  Listen as I talk with Benjamin Lorr who wrote the book ‘The Secret Life of Groceries’.
