This podcast, called Dialed Up, is an assessment of the economics of sustainable farming. The podcast and associated materials assess two of the largest economic incentives driving farmers to adopt sustainable farming practices: crop insurance and carbon markets.
These topics are explored across 9 episodes. The podcast, aimed for consumer audiences and those invested in sustainability and sourcing for CPG and food companies, provokes an in-depth analysis of one aspect of food systems and how that factor affects — and is affected by — the rest of the system.
Understanding sustainability from an economic standpoint, and through both private organizations and government organizations (for both carbon markets and crop insurance providers) allows us to develop a more solid understanding of our food systems, and how together we can build more effective, inclusive, equitable and integrated food systems in the future.
