Michael Pollan was on Real Time with Bill Maher this past weekend, and here’s the ten minute interview. When it comes to food choices, Maher is probably the best-informed big name interviewer working today — I wish Oprah Winfrey or Jon Stewart knew half as much about food as Maher does. In fact, I’d pay more attention to Maher than I would to Pollan.
The whole interview’s great, although Pollan has a knack for always finding one topic that he’s catastrophically wrong about. This time around it’s when he addresses the collapse of tuna populations, while saying people should just eat a little of the stuff. He misses the point that if six billion people eat just a little tuna, soon there won’t be anymore tuna. (Via Markarian.)
