John Mackey & Michael Pollan

Watch, live from home:

Whole Foods Market is the largest organic and natural retailer in the world. Tonight, the co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods, John Mackey will offer a multimedia presentation of the past, present, and future of food before joining Michael Pollan in conversation, continuing in person the exchange of views the two have been conducting since the publication of Pollan's 2006 book, "The Omnivore's Dilemma."

This event is sold out but thanks to the generous and collaborative efforts of Shuna and Dairy Queen I have managed to secure a ticket and, barring any gruesome commute and parking difficulties, will be there to watch the discussion live.

You can watch it too, from the comfort of your own home. The Webcast will up and running here, ten minutes before the event starts at 7pm PST.

    I just finished Omnivore's Dillema and found it eye opening. I would love to hear him speak in person... you are lucky!

    Thanks for the link.

    I also just finished The Omnivore's Dilemma, so I can't wait to hear what both parties have to say.

    I'm hoping some one will create a podcast of the event?
