Brian Halweil

Senior Researcher, World Watch Institute

Mark and Francis welcome Brian Halweil of the World Watch Institute to the show. Brian is a Senior researcher for the organization specializing in Food, Agriculture, Organic Farming, Biotechnology and Coffee. He recently authored "Eat Here" which talks about the benefits of supporting local farms and eating local products. Is it really cheaper to have all of our food imported from other countries? Is that something we really want to do - depend on foreign sources for our food (not unlike our oil)?

The Restaurant Guys

Who Are The Restaurant Guys? Every week, Francis Schott and Mark Pascal host the Restaurant Guys, a show that's as informative as it is fun. Francis and Mark own Stage Left Restaurant in the heart of New Brunswick's theatre district, and, along with their expertise in a wide range of fine dining and wine matters, they bring to the table humor and intelligent conversation, perfect for the midday listener. The show includes discussions and interviews with famous chefs, restaurateurs, wine and food writers, critics; and the Guys even give stuff away occasionally.
