HHRA shares its science via Heartland Stories Radio, a weekly 29-minute podcast and radio show hosted by producer and good food pioneer Theresa Marquez. With rotating guests, each show shares important information about what we can all do to ensure a healthy, just food system for the 21st century.

“I have dedicated my 40-year career to protecting family farmers and facing our health crisis through a culture of healthy food,” says Marquez. “I am inspired and dedicated to learn from professionals, using science to understand our problems — but sometimes the best common sense and inspiration comes from people on the ground facing problems and finding solutions that are often fun and creative.”
