The global hunger for meat

Even as some indicators show that Americans are eating less meat, the developing world is going the other direction. China’s consumption of pork, for instance, has grown more than 700 percent since 1975. Chewing the Fat co hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng are looking at what it takes to put meat on the table here and abroad in the most recent episode of their WBEZ podcast and they are joining us on this food Wednesday to talk about it.
