Randi's on vacation, but her good friend David Sirota is filling in for one more day, before he heads for the beach - and his own vacation. David's got a great guest today, and a full slate of topics, including:

Journalist, Author, and New York Times Opinion and Food columnist Mark Bittman will also talk with David about several topics, including the Farm Bill that passed the Senate last week, GM food - that's Genetically Modified food - and some actual good news about the food we eat.

Finally, David wants to know - what are your kids reading this summer? Does it matter? We'll have the details - and you can chime in with your opinions too.
Call David today at 866-87-RANDI (866-877-2634)
