Joel Bourne's soft Southern accent warms this frightening narrative about how the world's food and population have evolved since big science and big farming came to dominate. He looks back at the largely discredited predictions of political economist Thomas Malthus and brings them into a current context that leaves the listener questioning much. His agronomy background enriches his delivery and adds verisimilitude by making him sound like the farmer he is. This could be another dry factual narrative about the horrors of factory agriculture and Big Pharma but for Bourne bringing to life the tragedy and promise of the lives touched and lost. His passion for his subject and the future possibilities for humankind also give the listener hope. M.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
