From the moment we're born, we're going to know exactly what foods we should eat, for what purpose

Did you know one of our most common drugs was derived from plants, and that just 15 of the 50,000 edible plants on the earth provide 90% of our calories?! In this episode, I speak to Sofia Elizondo, cofounder of Brightseed, a Silicon Valley startup unearthing the bioactive compounds in plants that can have positive impacts on our bodies using artificial intelligence and computational biology. Tips for female founders too! Enjoy! (Disclosure, Brightseed is an AgFunder portfolio company)

In this episode of Future Food, I speak to Jennifer Betka, the chief marketing officer of Indigo Agriculture.

"When I look at our brand, I think it's a really curious brand that's asking really important questions. If growers can be incentivized to put carbon back into the soil, do consumers care?" Turns out they do!
