Listen to Me on the Family Food Kitchen Radio Show on Thursday

FFK Radio Show 2On Thursday, August 13, 2015, at 11 a.m. Eastern time (8 a.m. Pacific), catch the live interview with me, Melissa Diane Smith, on the Family Food Kitchen radio program on RadioMD: You can also listen over the phone by calling 844-305-7800.

In two 10-minute segments, hosts Ellen Briggs and Carolina Jantac will ask me to fill you in on the latest about genetically modified (GM) foods, frightening and disturbing news about the weed killer used on most of them, and what you need to know about GM potatoes and apples. If you can’t listen to the broadcast live, go to RadioMD a day or two after the interview, get the podcasts of the two segments, and listen to them at your convenience.
