Review of Mexican-Punjabi-American Farmer David Rai on Food Shortage

Good to be back, reviewing!

Pieces like this are rare because they go to the source and let people who have their hands and feet in the process speak. After all, the point of view of a farmer is as important as that of a scientist or a politician, at least, when it comes to farming.

But that's not what makes this piece even rarer. David is a Mexican-Punjabi-American farmer. If you as a listener don't find that fact fascinating on its own, I might have to summon my exclamation point-laden words and seduce you.

I didn't think you'd fall for that either. The guy is pretty straight-forward and speaks it as he sees it. Perhaps 9 minutes of his thoughts should count as valuable to listen.
