The season inspires thoughts of food--including the politics, economics, and ecology of US agriculture. Some personal reflections by KD are interwoven with 8 short commentaries by JIM HIGHTOWER.

Topics include deceptive packaging, declining food-safety rules for corporate meatpackers, low wages at fast-food chains, huge "agricultural" subsidies for the rich, how drug-warriors destroyed an organic farm, and a Connecticut vegetable farmer decides to add a few pigs and sell a little pork.
Jim Hightower's recorded commentaries are from his Web site:

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "imptimatur") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
Previously broadcast, as NWN #300, in December 2013. Files downloaded from the links, below, are identified as #300.

Music added: "The Design of the Galaxy ..." (artist unknown).
