The Quinoa Quarrel; Combating Unruly Squirrels

Listen

Guests: Lisa Hamilton and Bill Adler, Jr.

The grain quinoa has exploded in popularity spurring an interesting debate over who should have rights to its seeds which are controlled by Bolivia and other countries in the Andes region. In her new piece “The Quinoa Quarrel,” writer LISA HAMILTON explores issues surrounding the rights to and production of the superfood. We’ll talk with her about it. Then, we’ll turn our attention to our backyard and the squirrels who control it. We’ll talk with author BILL ADLER about the third edition of his book Outwitting Squirrels: 101 Cunning Stratagems to Reduce Dramatically the Egregious Misappropriation of Seed From Your Birdfeeder by Squirrels.
