In a time of eco-crisis and its denial, experts consider the fundamentals: food and water. What are the implications of the life within our oceans disappearing? What happens when water is both life-giving and potentially devastating? Tess Lea talks to authors Chin Jou (Supersizing America: How Inner Cities Got Fast Food with Government Help), Astrida Neimanis (co-author of Thinking with Water), Elspeth Probyn (Eating the Ocean) and Beth Yahp (Eat First, Talk Later) about our complex relationships with the things that give us life.
