New podcast, Food Safety Talk: Two guys, two mics, talking microbes, Episode 1 (sort of)

In an attempt to be topical and current, I’m getting together every couple of weeks with Don Schaffner via Skype to talk about what strikes our food safety fancy.

The tagline is: Don and Ben on the interwebs and talk food safety. Sometimes there are guests (we’ll get Doug on to talk about throwing up before hockey games and stealing toilet paper in a few weeks).

In this episode, which is sort of the pilot for this experiment, we discover that we can indeed talk about food safety for an hour, figure out how to record our ramblings and post the podcast to the magnificent Internet. This episode we talk about why they decided to do a podcast and about restaurant inspection. And the utility of Peter Frampton’s vocoder when interviewing public health and regulatory folks.
