On Let’s Get Real Chef Erica Wides walks you down the aisles of the surreal world of food, serving up a heaping dose of reality by separating the food from the foodiness so you can forage, hunt, gather, trap and fish for real food anywhere, even in a foodiness-filled mega market. Incisive, pragmatic, sarcastic, and an unrepentant know-it-all when it comes to anything food, on Let’s Get Real Chef Erica Wides does the job for you of sifting out everything that’s fake in the world of food – from “foodiness” marketing and cooking show shams to “health-halo green-washing” and annoying whole-food righteousness – so you never unknowingly chow down on carpeting again.

Let's Get Real - Episode 54 - Jews Don't Control the Media, Foodiness Does
Propaganda creates reality. Foodiness exists because we continue to consider it real food. Erica is here to continue in her quest to destroy all things foodiness, and convince listeners that real food is real food - and nothing else. Tune in for an exploration into the stranglehold Hollywood and television has on our decision making when it comes to food, and find out how her appearance on Dr. Oz helped move things just so slightly in the direction of what's right. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
