Professor Michael Pollan is a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine and former editor at Harpers, but is best known for his blockbuster books about food and agriculture: The Omnivore’s Dilemma, The Botany of Desire, and In Defense of Food. He sat down with former Mother Jones editor Deirdre English to talk about how he started on the food and agriculture beat, and how he's passing it on to younger journalists.
