In this episode we were able to hear the second half of a fantastic discussion with Roger Thurow, a former correspondent for the Wall Street Journal and now a senior fellow for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

He also was the keynote speaker for the 2019 Global Learning in Agriculture Conference (#GLAG19), with the live event hosted at Penn State! We were able to sit down and discuss agricultural development, food insecurity and his personal mantra to "Outrage and Inspire".
