Fiddleheads, Cod Tongues, and Poutine Guest: Lenore Newman, Canada Research Chair in Food Security and the Environment, University of the Fraser Valley, and author, "Speaking in Cod Tongues: A Canadian Culinary Journey" Poutine, maple syrup, ketchup chips, and cod tongues are a few items that come to mind when talking about Canadian cuisine. We explore their history, and what it means to live in a country that was essentially "created over lunch." Drive-Thru Dreams Guest: Adam Chandler, author, "Drive-Thru Dreams: A Journey Through the Heart of America's Fast-Food Kingdom" Usually, fast food only gets the limelight when something goes wrong. Health scares, the obesity crisis, someone’s finger found in a bowl of chili? While these are certainly part of fast-food culture, drive-thrus, according to Adam Chandler, sometimes get an unnecessarily bad rap.
