In this episode you’ll hear Leif Utne’s recent conversation with Marnita Schroedl, creator and host of <a href=”http://www.marnitastable.org/” target=”_blank”>Marnita’s Table</a>, a cross-cultural dialogue and social-networking project that is, as she puts it, “spreading world peace, one meal at a time.” Marnita’s Table is the subject of a feature section on conversation in the November/December Utne Reader, including the articles <a href=”https://www.utne.com/politics/a-feast-of-ideas.aspx”>A Feast of Ideas</a> and <a href=”https://www.utne.com/politics/dish-it-up.aspx”>Dish It Up</a>, the latter about how to host your own dinner-dialogue gathering.</p>
<p>And this week Utne Reader senior editor Keith Goetzman reviews the new album Dirt Farmer from Levon Helm.</p>
