Bill Maher Interviews Pollan

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.)
