This is Meatless, a podcast about eating. I’m Alicia Kennedy, a food and drink writer. On this show, I’ll be having conversations with chefs, writers, and more about how their personal and political beliefs determine whether or not they eat meat. We will ask the question: How do identity, culture, economics, and history affect a diet?
