The IDE Impolite Conversation podcast is a weekly podcast exploring culture, race and societal issues through the lens of culture critics, industry experts and writers. It’s part of The Iconoclast Dinner Experience (“IDE”) — an organization that programs celebrations, dinners and curated conversations through food.
Tonight (September 12), IDE is hosting its 13 Million Acres event at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms.
The dinner will feature sourcing from African-American and Mexican-American owned and operated farms in Detroit and Washtenaw County. Natalie Baszile will join the event as the Honorary Chair.
