Sick Business: Catherine Collins & Douglas Frantz with Joshua Knelman
October 01 at 3:30pm
Uncover the shocking truth behind two global-wide industries, and the morally ambiguous business practices and politics that have prioritized profit over public health for decades. In riveting conversation, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Douglas Frantz and former private investigator Catherine Collins expose the unappetizing truth about the international salmon farming industry in Salmon Wars: The Dark Underbelly of our Favorite Fish. A decade ago, farmed Atlantic salmon replaced tuna as the most popular fish on North America’s dinner tables. We are told salmon is healthy and environmentally friendly, but you’ll learn the reality is disturbingly different. Award-winning author and founding member of The Walrus magazine Joshua Knelman ventures into the heart of the tobacco industry, with Firebrand: A Tobacco Lawyer’s Journey. Told through the globe-trotting narrative of a young lawyer recruited by Big Tobacco at the start of the new millennium, you’ll discover through the paradoxes of capitalism why perhaps cigarettes should never have been available as a mass-market product at all.
Moderated by Richard Stursberg.
