Ann Richardson’s persuasive narration sheds light on the paradoxes and perils of our nation’s cultural food values. This illuminating audiobook examines how our lives drive how we eat and how the way we eat affects how we perceive our day. Richardson’s smooth tones reflect the consumers’ naïveté and fascination with food and what they choose to eat. These attitudes are ironic, given the debilitating effect that the typical American meal is actually having on them. Richardson’s inflections convey surprise, excitement, and dismay at the descriptions of food-related phenomena such as brunch queues and Super Bowl snacks and how the nation’s values of work, freedom, and progress not only shape our food culture but also hurt us by misdirecting our food mores.
