The Leading Voices in Food Podcast Series

Welcome to The Leading Voices in Food

Our vision for The Leading Voices in Food podcast series is to offer wide-ranging perspectives and knowledge from researchers, community leaders, policymakers, farmers and more. We will feature topics across the food system spectrum such as food insecurity, obesity, agriculture, access and equity, food safety, food defense, and food policy issues. The series is hosted by Dr. Kelly Brownell, director of the World Food Policy Center, and professor of public policy and psychology at Duke University.
