Sourcing Matters show

By Aaron Niederhelman

Sourcing Matters is a talkshow for critical issues and the wonderful stories woven into our food system. Broadcasting from the Northeast U.S. - we host less-than-an-hour conversations with interesting characters from all over the globe. Visit our dialogues library to hear more from these folks making all kinds of good things happen. Chatting-up leaders focused on food system reform and reducing our environmental imprint, host Aaron Niederhelman examines both the problems and solutions paramount, and opportune, with feeding ourselves on a shrinking planet. "We engage in short dialogues with visionaries who know how to spin some yarn" explains Niederhelman. Often eccentric and diverse in background, when these folks share their stories about our food, good and bad, it's clear we must listen. Niederhelman continues, "These conversations give us hope, and a chance to think differently about our food." As you'll hear from each engaging guest, there are many values to be gained by acting now in properly shepherding the inherited bounty and growing burden tied to regenerative natural resource management. Sourcing Matters sets to tap the emotional side of food by sharing these stories from those fighting for a better you.
