  1. Retroist McDonald’s McRib Podcast

    In this episode, I discuss the legendary or infamous (depending on who you ask) pork fast food sandwich, McDonald’s McRib.

    I am a fan of fast food and enjoy reading about the fast-food industry. This episode is a celebration of the McRib and a discussion of its history and creation.

    I start the show talking about quests. I enjoy seeking things and fast food has given me many opportunities to seek things over the years. From premiums to limited-time foods, the searching has brought me great joy.

    Then I move onto the sandwich itself. I discuss the creators of the McRib, the process of making one, its relationship to the pork industry, its initial failure, and its slow inevitable rise.

    Metagrrl is back this week with a top 5 list of discontinued McDonald’s menu items. It’s a great list that could almost be a podcast unto itself. I think you will enjoy it.

    The McRib is a fascinating bit of food science and commerce. It has a colorful history that is worth exploring. I am not sure why, but it makes me happy that a community has coalesced around a molded pork patty sandwich. So make sure to get a McRib while you can.

  4. Reasons to be optimistic about climate change action

    Decision makers and political leaders around the globe may be preoccupied with tackling the coronavirus, but they should not forget about climate change.

    We have ten years to halve global greenhouse gas emissions, and move toward zero emissions.

    Failure to do so will lead to environmental catastrophe.

    So believes Christiana Figueres, former head of the UN convention on climate change, who helped deliver the Paris agreement.

    She explains to Paul Barclay why she is optimistic.

    Recorded on March 11, 2020, at HOTA on the Gold Coast, as part of the Out Loud festival. Presented in conjunction with Griffith University

    Speaker:

    Christiana Figueres - diplomat, author former Executive Secretary, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
