  1. 53: Fiction & Food

    How do we use fiction in food? What does a character’s choice of food reveal about them? Do you simply have to go and make a dish when it’s described beautifully in a book?

    On this very special episode, a collaboration with the wonderful Spice Bags podcast, we discuss everything from 17th century Spanish literature to contemporary American horror, Italian detective novels to Japanese magical realism. Grab yourself a glass of Amarone and have a listen!

  4. Big Tobacco, Racial Marketing, and the Untold Story of the Menthol Cigarette (Keith Wailoo)

    “I can’t breathe.” Those were George Floyd’s final words before he was murdered by police in Minneapolis — just outside a store known as the best place to buy menthol cigarettes.

    Today’s rise in Black deaths, cries of “I can’t breathe,” and the menthol cigarette can all be linked to a long history of race and exploitation. This is revealed in a new book by historian Keith Wailoo: “Pushing Cool,” which pulls back the curtain on the hidden persuaders who shaped menthol buying habits and racial markets across America.

    Wailoo is the Henry Putnam University Professor of History and Public Affairs. He has produced award-winning research and teaches on a range of topics, including drugs and drug policy; race, science, and health; and health policy and medical affairs in the U.S.

  5. Unpeeling the Orange Empire: Citrus & Art in the Archive with Suzy Kopf

    How did citrus fruit come to carry its particular meaning in American consumer culture? Visual artist Suzy Kopf, instructor at the Maryland Institute College of Art, visited the Hagley Library to research citrus companies’ efforts to sell their products to Americans. What she found was a much deeper story of how changing technologies, markets, and popular culture made citrus, and its semitropical cousin avocado, into a beacon of sunshine, fun, and desirability.

    Supported by an exploratory grant from the Center for the History of Business, Technology, & Society, Kopf dug into a variety of collections to uncover the untold stories of American citrus in the twentieth century. From produce marketing photographs, to real estate and vacation pamphlets, to instructional booklets for citrus growers and grocery store operators, Kopf found a wealth of materials in the Hagley archives to inform and inspire her artwork in multiple media.

  6. The Making of THE SOPHTWARE SLUMP by Grandaddy - featuring Jason Lytle — Life of the Record

    In celebration of the 20th anniversary, Jason Lytle looks back on the

    process of making THE SOPHTWARE SLUMP. Jason talks about being "a man with

    a mission" while holing up in a farmhouse and tracking and mixing nearly

    everything himself. As the band’s stature was growing and the curse of the

    sophomore slump lingered, Jason describes the pressure and uncertainty he

    felt at the turn of the century.
