Publisher's Summary

Got a lot of frequent flyer miles? Probably not as much as your food does! Today, the average meal travels thousands of miles to our table. On today's show, we're talking transportation...from our food to our personal travels. We begin with shipping containers and our moveable feast. Then, a couple talks about their year of eating locally. Later, we take a train ride in India. We'll also talk to a neuroscientist about the tricks of memory and Proust's famous madeleines. Plus potluck pointers, Jessica Harris on the ferry rides of her childhood, and a cab driver's memoir. [Broadcast Date: January 17, 2008]
