watch: heritage radio network

In March of 2009, Patrick Martins and Heritage Foods USA started broadcasting the Heritage Radio Network out of two re-purposed shipping containers.

Located in the back garden of Roberta’s Restaurant in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the station regularly broadcasts over 20 shows focused on food and sustainability.

Featuring in-depth information and conversations from a variety of viewpoints, topics range from gardening to farming, from culinary techniques to financial advice, with a dash of architecture and music.

First, get your hands dirty when The Farm Report hosts talk to farmers across the country; and Greenhorn Radio is ‘by farmers for farmers’ with reports from farming communities painting a picture of the day-to-day life and struggles within the agricultural community.

Next, there’s We Dig Plants—all about gardening and landscape design—and At the Root of It which travels through the world of wine.

There are specials and mini-series for singular topics while A Taste of the Past, gets into the whys and the ways we eat—a look at how food is integral to our culture, our history—and their effects on present food trends.

Take a trip through the foodways of the United States—whether its about southern cooking or food policies—in Hot Grease and experience Brooklyn Eats by taking audio culinary tours throughout NY.

Flash Talks Cash helps explain the financials of opening or running small businesses—as well as managing personal finances—and Burning Down the House is the only weekly show that discusses architecture, design, and the built environment.

And last but not least, The Main Course talks up the food supply chain—from farmer to processor, from distributor to chef—all the way to a plate at home, in a restaurant, or a brown bag at the office. And The Food Seen is a well blended cocktail of food and art—which brings from behind the scenes to the forefront—photographers and artists that make your mouth water with crisp, colorful imagery.

Check their schedule for the next Snacky Tunes and don’t miss iTunes podcasts of all these shows—and Cutting the Curd as its host talks all things cheese.
