Brian explains the ethnobotanical roots of cacao, from the neurophysiology of the sensory experience that starts at one's tastebuds, to the underpinnings of chocolate's widely touted health benefits, to the slave labor practices that the chocolate industry doesn't want you to know about. He discusses the therapeutic and ceremonial applications of the "food of the gods", and the ancient cultures that used cocoa beans as currency.
