Behind the Mic: On A Grain of Salt by Dr. Joe Schwarcz, Read by Jonathan Yen
Dig Into the Science Behind What We Eat and Why
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
On today’s episode, host Jo Reed and AudioFile contributor Alan Minskoff discuss all the science and pseudoscience about what we eat, uncovered by Canadian author Dr. Joe Schwarcz in his book, A Grain of Salt. This audiobook collects essays on nutrition, diet, and eating, in an attempt to apply scientific information about the foods we eat and address some wild internet claims. Narrator Jonathan Yen provides a clear and intelligent narration, and has the right tone for all the science—and the humor—found in this work.
