Where Am I Eating: An Adventure Through The Global Food Economy [Audiobook]
Where Am I Eating?: An Adventure Through the Global Food Economy by Kelsey Timmerman
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 288 MB
Overview: Bridges the gap between global farmers and fishermen and American consumers.
America now imports twice as much food as it did a decade ago. What does this increased reliance on imported food mean for the people around the globe who produce our food? Kelsey Timmerman set out on a global quest to meet the farmers and fisherman who grow and catch our food, working alongside them: loading lobster boats in Nicaragua, splitting cocoa beans with a machete in Ivory Coast, and hauling tomatoes in Ohio. Where Am I Eating? tells fascinating stories of the farmers and fishermen around the world who produce the food we eat, explaining what their lives are like and how our habits affect them.
Where Am I Eating? shows how what we eat affects the lives of the people who produce our food, and explores the global food economy including workers rights, the global food crisis, fair trade, and immigration. Where Am I Eating? does not argue for or against the globalization of food, but personalizes it by observing the hope and opportunity, and sometimes the lack thereof, which the global food economy gives to the world’s poorest producers.

At the same time, it was clandestinely helping to fight America’s wars.

• The airline’s role in building air bases in Latin America and countering Axis interests that threatened the Panama Canal
• Creating transatlantic and trans-Africa supply lines for sending Lend-Lease equipment to Britain
• Cooperation with Chiang Kai-shek and the Chinese nationalist government to pioneer the dangerous "Hump" route over the Himalayas

• The daring flight that delivered uranium for the atomic bomb.
Filled with larger-than-life characters, and revelations of the vision and technology it took to dominate the skies, Pan Am at War provides a gripping unknown history of the American Century.

Overview: Two years have passed since Inanna stole Junco away from Lucan. Two years of unimaginable pain. Two years of isolation, mutilation and torture. Two years of fear and loneliness in a morph tank. And that’s not something you just get over, even if you are psycho-assassin, Junco Coot.
Now Junco has to learn to live with the consequences. Her siblings are suspicious and angry, half her team is dead, Tier is wreaking death and destruction, Lucan is holding his secrets close, and she is spiraling out of control.

Junco is tired of fighting and death. She’s had enough and this time she means to end it – once and for all.
