I’ve heard some constructive feedback lately regarding the GMO Truth, with one big suggestion relating to Transcripts and Highlights. Since we aim to please, highlights will now appear with this and all future podcasts, and we might even go back to 1-4 and do the same when time permits. Transcripts will be on their way too. We can’t say exactly when yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
So in GMO TRUTH #5 here, after a quick intro for the first video interview of the project, I then play and discuss the “Drink a Whole Quart of It” video, referring to glyphosate of course. Then we get into the actual interview with Canadian GMO farmer Abe Wiens (although it’s important to note, only one of Abe’s crops is GMO), and then close with commentary on that interview and what’s up next.
Remember, if you have any questions or comments about this week’s ‘cast, feel free to use the “Send a Voice Message” widget on the right, and YOU will then make an appearance on the next GMO Truth Podcast. Or, simply post them below or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We DO answer all emails!
