Today Monica Hadley interviews the Democratic candidate for Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Francis Thicke. They will discuss his campaign & book.


The message in A New Vision for Iowa Food and Agriculture, is clear: plan for the end of cheap oil in agriculture. It is an engaging and quick read, grounded in Thicke's experiences as an organic dairy farmer in his Fairfield, Iowa community. One has to agree, Iowans are not doing enough to become aware of the end of cheap oil, much less plan for the inevitability of it and its impact on our lives...


During the last hundred years, Iowa agriculture has been transformed into an industrial behemoth when the rest of industrial society was converting to information based operations. In an information age, agriculture has been slow to adopt new technologies, especially those related to energy production on the farm. This despite emergence of new information about organic farming, renewable energy sourcing and sustainability.

Mari Culver

At 1pm, cohosts James Moore and Dennis Raimondi speak with Iowa's First Lady Mari Culver about her work around the state and reflections from the campaign trail.

Among other things, she has been an advocate for public preschool, one of the hallmarks of her husband Governor Chet Culver's administration. [Read more about that here.]

She also discusses her husband's positions on embryonic stem cell research, keeping nonprofits out of partisan politics and the inordinate amount of money, unlimited and undisclosed, corporations have funneled through organizations like the US Chamber of Commerce (90% of chamber dollars going to Republican causes and candidates, according to the NY Times) since the Supreme Court decision opened the floodgates earlier this year (Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission).

velouté sauceIndian Hills culinary students take over the GREAT TASTE kitchen in the KRUU studio for a basic sauce session.  We'll learn how to make velouté-the standard version with chicken stock and a vegetarian alternative.  That's just the start as we explore many of the riffs you can create from velouté, one of the four "mother" sauces of French cuisine as classified by Antonin Carême in the first half of the 19th century.  We can also thank Carême for that icon of kitchen fashion, the modern toque or chef's hat.


Charlie Schiller will guide us through the sauce making process.  We're happy to welcome him back after his recently completed internship at the Des Moines Embassy Club.  We'll see if he'll share any stories about what it was like to be "the intern" in a high-powered kitchen.
