1. It's Sky Full of Bacon, the Chicago-based high-definition video podcast about interesting people and great-looking food.

    You know you're in Chinatown when you see ducks and chickens with their heads on in the window! Chicago's Sun Wah has been serving Chinese BBQ that way for 20 years. Now the younger generation plans to take over the restaurant, so I go behind the scenes to see how Peking Duck is made and what it's like in a Chinese family to pass the business from father to daughter.

  2. It's Sky Full of Bacon, the Chicago-based high-definition video podcast about interesting people and great-looking food.

    Local is a hot word in food these days. In "How Local Can You Go?"

    FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.

    Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.
