Weekend viewing: Hasan Minhaj on obesity politics
I learned about this from a tweet.
I recognized the clip. It was from an interview I did in January in Toronto: TVO’s The Agenda: Battling bias in nutrition research (slso on YouTube, and in transcript). Nam was the terrific interviewer.
But do not miss Minhaj’s last Patriot Act episode of 2019, “How America is Causing Global Obesity.” This is a brilliantly researched account of obesity politics, from food industry influence to trade policy.
I couldn’t have done better myself and dearly wish I had his production team (and his performance ability).
