Plated Earth is an investigatory podcast that examines food through culture, history, taste, culinary application, political dynamics, and more. Episodes alternate between our Plated Earth Food Fables and guest interviews or produce spotlights. Plated Earth Food Fables are original short historical fiction stories about produce and its ability to connect people, culture, and history. These Food Fables are told from the perspective of a fictional character named Demitri Moto, who works at The Original Farmers Market in Los Angeles. With each Food Fables episode, we hear more about Demitri and his background in food, his worldly influences, and his love for produce, and we hear him tell a complete “food fable” as he sits around the community tables at the market sharing the stories of produce with passersby. Guest interviews and produce spotlights will feature influencers within the food community and highlight specific produce facts to help guide future produce explorations.
