Aaron Bobrow-Strain on White Bread

June 8, 2012

White bread has been hailed as the salvation of national health, and reviled as a symbol of the oppressive establishment. In his new history of the industrial white loaf, Aaron Bobrow-Strain explores the many meanings embedded in our most fought-over food.   He decodes the unsavory political and economic consequences of some of our most popular assumptions about food.


Does anyone know the artists/title of the harmony group song "White Bread Blues" that played after this segment?
