Image Hosted by Tonight on TDS, Documentarian Robert Kenner, discusses the dark side of industrial food production, as displayed in his film Food, Inc; and on TCR,  Ed Viesturs,

 sausage grinder of snark

Tonight's guest Robert Kenner is the director of Food Inc. Which you've read about all  over the place, even if you haven't seen it yet.  So, um, yay exposure!

Return guest and mountainclimber high altitude adventurer Ed Viesturs is leading a couple sports guys (NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Seahawks coach Jim Mora) on a climb of Mount Rainier this weekend. Also, there's his next book, K2: Life and Death on the World's Most Dangerous Mountain, which won't be available until October. Oh, and  he unretired to climb Everest again, and he promised Stephen that he'd plant the Colbert Nation flag at the top of Everest the next time he was there...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
