Around the world, farmers are increasingly planting cassava rather than other crops to mitigate the effects of drought. Due to cassava’s drought-resistant qualities and ability to survive defoliation, it's an ideal crop for communities impacted by climate change and food insecurity. In today’s episode of Climate Cuisine, we’re discussing how cassava has been feeding people throughout South America, Africa, and Asia. It is one of the most resilient starches out there and can be processed into bread, couscous, and even boba. We’re speaking with Pierre Thiam and Andrea Castillo to learn more about this incredible crop. Topics covered in this episode: Min 1:26: An intro to Climate Cuisine Min 2:14: What is cassava? Min 2:44: Meet Tammy Turner Min 3:59: Figuring out one’s natural ecology Min 5:53: What happens when you don’t eat in accordance with your climate Min 9:36: Meet Andrea K. Castillo Min 11:02: The surprising toxin in cassava Min 11:39: Steps to make Belizean cassava bread Min 15:38: Meet Pierre Thiam Min 17:12: Ways cassava is used in West African cuisine Min 19:44: How Pierre decolonizes his cuisine Min 21:54: The ills of monoculture cassava farms Min 24:45: Increasing interest in African food cultures Climate Cuisine is part of Whetstone Radio Collective.

http://www.attractionchecklist.com - This episode we head off to where the birds sing words and the flowers croon! We visit Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland on this episode of Attraction Checklist. Recorded on May 18, 2021. TRANSCRIPT: Welcome to Attraction Checklist. Let's flap our wings over to Disneyland to visit Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. The Disneyland Resort Website describes this attraction saying: Tropical birds, tiki gods and colorful flowers come to life in a swinging South Seas musical celebration. There are no age or height requirements for this attraction and the thrill level describes it as being Dark and Loud. Before we sing like the birdies sing, here are five fast facts about Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. 1. Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room opened at Disneyland on June 23, 1963. 2. People associate The Enchanted Tiki Room with Dole Pineapples because they are the shows current sponsors and because of the Dole Whip soft serve sold near the entrance. Dole only became the sponsor in 1976. The shows original sponsor was United Airlines. 3. The Tiki Room features over 225 Audio Animatronic performers including birds, flowers and wooden tikis. 4. In order to keep the computers that run the show cool, The Enchanted Tiki Room building was Disneyland's first fully air-conditioned building. 5. The four main birds: José, Michael, Pierre and Fritz are voiced by Wally Boag, Fulton Burley, Ernie Newton and Thurl Ravenscroft respectively. Let's go get our seats for this Tropical Serenade. After the show I'll give you my thoughts on this classic attraction. This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones put them on now as we visit Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland.

“Usually when people think of avocados, they think of guacamole. Fortunately we have an avocado that's a little more versatile.” Chris Gonzalez (07:02 - 07:09) Avocados have become household favorites in the United States, as of late. The small Hass avocado is the most popular, but to our neighbors in Latin America, the tropical avocado is the norm. WP Produce was founded to provide these avocados to Latin communities in the United States that are familiar with them. Vice President of WP Produce, Desiree Morales grew up on tropical avocados and it led her father to start WP Produce in 1984. While working in retail markets for a chain in the United States he realized they didn't serve his community with the products he grew up with in Cuba. He then founded WP Produce to make those products accessible to other Latin consumers in the United States. He began with importing produce like avocados and payas from the Dominican Republic so people in his community would have foods they're familiar with. Years later, his family continues to run the company. Vice President of Sales at WP Produce Chris Gonzalez is not only Desiree's cousin but a second generation grower as well. To Chris, the versatility of tropical avocados is key as you get more bang for your buck. One tropical avocado can be about the size of a softball and equal out to around four Hass avocados. The sizing is naturally larger with a creamier flavor, resulting from growing at a higher altitude. Tropical avocados also stay greener, longer. “The main thing that consumers love about tropical avocados is the oxidation. It's much slower. It won't turn black as fast.” Desiree Morales (14:01 - 14:08) Bringing tropical avocados to the United States is not about “taking over” the avocado market. Households are more familiar with the Hass avocado right now but tropical avocados bring with them different characteristics. Chris and Desiree are proud to be able to provide tropical avocados year-round, coast to coast, a feat typically not seen in other produce markets. No one grows, sources, and ships more avocados than WP Produce. You can find WP Produces' tropical avocados at Publix, Weggmens, Wal-Mart and Albertsons. If you can't find any locally, WP Produce recently launched a direct-to-consumer tropical fruit box. Everything in the boxes are packed at the WP Produce headquarters and shipped fresh.

Up to 8 percent of deer sampled in studies in the US were found to be infected with the SARS-Cov-2 Virus. Suresh Kuchipudi from the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences at Penn State University in the US says what they are seeing is a mixture of human to deer and deer to deer transmission of the virus. There is concern that its presence in animal reservoirs could lead to a new form of the virus emerging. Tropical forests and spread of zoonotic diseases And as the Cop26 meeting in Glasgow draws to a close we ask how global policy on climate will impact the spread of zoonotic disease. Spill over of possible pandemic pathogens from animals to humans occurs with the destruction of tropical forests in particular and can expose people to previously unknown zoonotic diseases such as Covid 19. Aaron Bernstein from the Coalition to Prevent Pandemics at the Source says healthcare initiatives designed to reduce the potential spread of such diseases need to be designed to work in tandem with conservation and climate change impact reduction initiatives, essentially tackling both problems simultaneously. LED lighting Researchers in South Africa are looking into ways of making LED lighting both cheaper and more efficient. This should help reduce energy consumption, a prerequisite for effective policy on climate change. In addition, as Professor Odireleng Martin Ntwaeaborwa tells us, the technology now has many applications in places where access to electricity is limited, including South Africa which currently has regular power outages. Personalised medicine And personalised medicine based on our genes took a further step forward this week. Richard Scott, Chief Medical Officer for Genomics England discusses new findings which reveal the genetic basis for a range or rare diseases. And, Concrete is the most widely used substance on earth after water. It's quite literally the foundation of the modern world, and no wonder - it's strong, cheap, and mouldable into nearly any shape. But these benefits come at a cost: concrete production is responsible for around 8% of global CO2 emissions - that's around three times more than the aviation industry. Concrete might not look pretty, but given its carbon footprint, should we be more careful about how we use it? And rather than throwing waste into landfill, could we recycle it instead? That's what Crowdscience listener Catherine wants to know. To investigate, Marnie Chesterton and Anand Jagatia learn more about what makes concrete such a brilliant and versatile material. It's down to the chemistry of how cement dries – which, it turns out, is anything but boring. They find out how the stuff is made, and why that produces so much carbon. And they hear about some ingenious projects to repurpose demolition waste – including creating underwater habitats for marine life, and using 3D printers to turn crushed concrete into street furniture.

At the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow, the US and European nations agreed to provide $8.5 billion in financing to help South Africa phase out its use of coal power. South Africa, which is experiencing yet another wave of power outages, gets most of its electricity from burning coal and is the largest carbon emitter in Africa. What international aid means for South Africa's energy transition.
