I try to read any new book that comes out on the topic, and that includes Richard Munson’s new book Tech to Table: 25 Innovators Reminaging Food. I really enjoyed reading this book by someone who’s far more well-known for his deep-dive biographies of visionaries like Nikola Tesla and Jacque Cousteau, but now has written a new book featuring dozens of entrepreneurs seeking to create a more sustainable food system. And they’re doing this not by returning to 19th century agriculture, but by embracing 21st century food and agriculture technology.

In this interview we discuss everything from how new tech can displace old jobs, why some environmentalists don’t seem that down with new tech that could benefit the environment, and what the future of food and ag may bring. It’s a wide-ranging conversation about a book with a wide-range of topics and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
