Food, Inc. on PBS

I was too late to get tickets to the conversation this evening, Inside the Hen House, which was moderated by Michael Pollan. The event was sold out. "We are recording it," I was assured on the phone. "And it will be posted on our website." The next best thing, I say.

I came home instead and there was an email from Michael Pollan. (I'm on the list.) He was sending a reminder--- tomorrow night, Wednesday night, PBS will be broadcasting Food, Inc. at 9 PM.

And the news got better. The movie will be streamed, the entire movie streamed, for a week beginning Thursday, the 22nd through the 29th. That's my ticket. I want to see it again. I could do without certain parts but the good outweighs them.

When Food, Inc. first came out the cute guy and I made a bet in which I said I would give him $20 for every person we know who went to see the movie. I could see him picturing a new main sail, a jib sail. The man wants new sails.

To date I owe him $20.

But the bet is still on. And somehow this seems wrong, routing for the wrong team, betting against myself and still here I go. Watch the movie, leave a comment. And I'll give the cute guy $20.

He'll be so excited.

my husband and i watched the movie a while ago. i ordered it via netflix. best of all, my husband ordered his own copy of it to show his students as part of their unit on health/health and safety in the work place.

I also ordered the movie from netflix but I do wish that I had a copy to show to my 13 yo son. I thought it was really well done.

becky - I love your best of all, a Johnny Appleseed story. Thank you and $40 to the cute guy.

Tammy - I thought it was well done too for including such a broad base of information. There could be an entire movie about any one of the subjects they touch on. I particularly like Eric Schlosser and Joel Salatin. Thanks for the comment. The cute guy says thank you too.

Katrina, I got it from Netflix and Pepe and I watched it together. Excellent movie, quite an eye-opener. I think the Cute Guy gets another $40 towards the main sail.

TQ - He does get another $40. I can't wait to talk to you about the movie. I'm glad you saw it. And liked it!

I watched the movie with my son. We get our beef from the local farm across the street. The cows roam the grassy fields. I feel so good about it. I'd rather pay more and eat less than support big beef.
A cute pick of the cows and the maple syrup making on the farm are on my blog here:

Andrea - I saw the snow cows and the picture of the lane with snow on the trees - it's fabulous. Thanks for saying you watched Food Inc. The cute guys sail account is adding up. In fact I'm putting in double because your son watched. Educating our kids is everything.

Katrina, I am finally catching up on reading your blog after being away. I saw Food, Inc. when it was at the Rafael--I'm glad I saw it and even happier that this also means a contribution to the CG's sail fund.
