“What you think of sliced white bread says a lot about who you are” writes AARON BOBROW-STRAIN, Associate Professor of Politics at Whitman College in Washington. His new book WHITE BREAD: A SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE STORE-BOUGHT LOAF is a fascinating and surprising account of how “industrial white bread” came into being and evolved to become the preferred bread of much of America. It’s a wild story that centers on a national fear of food impurity, a fear of immigrants and the quest for a bread of the future that would be untouched by human hands. It didn’t matter if it was tasteless and doughy as long as it was good for the country. Tune in tonight for an entertaining story of America and the staff of life.
