Episode 14 - The Grandeur that was Lipa

Filipino food scholar Bel Castro tells the oft-repeated story about a mythic era in the late 19th century in which wealth abounded for Philippine coffee growers thanks to lags in the world market. She debunks and complicates this myth with a political and post-colonial analysis that has relevance for all commodity tales today. "[The] history of coffee in the Philippines … is told as a fairytale of great golden days, that if you work hard and if we do our job right and we can go back to it when actually it should be a cautionary tale." -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause. Music in this episode was byAva Glendinning,Uuriter,Nitoy Gonzales and his Rondalla and TheAmerican Regimental Band.

Episode 12 - Why Kitchen Technology Matters

English food writer Bee Wilson traces the genealogy of kitchen utensils and how they shape our lives-- from vegetable peelers to paleo lithic knives, chopsticks and even the mortar and pestle. She begs the question: why shouldn’t we consider kitchen tools to be just as important as military or industrial technology? "We think technology means cannons or, I don't know, guns-- and we forget it could be a pot or a pan or even a wooden spoon." -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause.

Episode 10 - Acorns and Civilized Panic

What do famine foods throughout history tell us about the world in which they were eaten?

"In times of hardships we need to keep trusting that things are going to get better. We need to keep thinking that yes we are still ourselves we are still who we used to be yesterday and the day before. The easiest way to do so is keeping doing the things that we used to do." -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause.

Many indigenous communities around Turtle Island (North America) are reclaiming relationships to ancestral seeds after hundreds of years of disconnection due to colonial violence. Chef Sean Sherman and scholar Elizabeth Hoover tell the tales of seeds, seed-keepers, and indigenous chefs who are bringing traditional foods back into focus. "Thinking about seeds as living relatives-- how do you ensure that they continue to have a relationship with other people in your family, in your community, so that people can continue to plant them and learn from them and eat them?" -- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause.

Episode 8 - The Opium Poppies of Anatolia

What happens when one people’s traditional food is also an international controlled substance? Turkish architect and food researcher Aylin Öney Tan goes on a deep dive into the history of opium poppy cultivation for food in Anatolia and the subsequent decades of international political interference in Turkey’s agricultural production. “The] opium poppy has always been a source of food for Anatolian people. You have to grow your own food and you have to be self sustained, that’s it!” Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur, edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair and mixed by Thomas Krause.

Ox Tales Episode 6 - Bull's Head Breakfast

Retired LA Times food writer and food historian Charles Perry explains how the 19th century Los Angeles practice of earth-pit barbecuing whole bulls became a culinary craze for settlers who saw the eating of the bull’s head as a wild west delicacy, and how the rise of Hollywood changed the practice into what we know today as the backyard barbecue. “People had this obscure sense that they had been having too much fun in the 20s and they now were being punished and so everything became suave and elegant and the idea of being able to invite people as if on the spur of the moment for a steak was very appealing.” --- Ox Tales is produced by Anna Sigrithur and edited by Naomi Duguid and Fiona Sinclair with production help by Thomas Krause.
