Social Studies—Food And Mood

Social Studies—Food And Mood
Social StudiesWe’ve all heard the adage, “you are what you eat.” The idea being, that in order to be fit and healthy you need to eat good food. But could it be that the famous phrase is truer than we ever imagined? Study after study has revealed that what we eat often has a surprising—and very real—effect on our minds, our emotions and our behavior. And it’s not just a one-way street. Our minds also play an integral—and complex—role in determining what we eat... and why. It’s a role that’s exploited by everyone from the McDonald’s marketing department to exasperated parents trying to get their kids to eat more broccoli. Our “Social Studies” guru Robin Abrahams joins us for a look at food and mood.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
