Things That Go Boom – Food Fight

In this special from from Things That Go Boom, Inkstick Media, and PRX: Two stories about food, family, and the choices our government makes in our name.

This time of year, with the flags and bunting, flipping burgers on the grillā€¦ it tends to get us thinking about what exactly it means to be American.

There are a lot of answers to that question. But one we donā€™t often explore has to do with those burgers, or pad thaiā€¦ whatever you might find on your plateā€¦ and what those things have to do with our national security.

In this special from from Things That Go Boom, Inkstick Media, and PRX: Two stories about food, family, and the choices our government makes in our name.

The US Secret War turned many Southeast Asians into refugees. Now their kids are keeping that story alive. 

But firstā€¦. We meetĀ oneĀ of theĀ one-in-fourĀ military families dealing with hunger, even as they serve our country.

This special will air on Friday June 30th at 10 AM and 8 PM here on 88.3 FM KCPW.
