Center for American Progress Action

S. Leo Chiang on ‘Island in Between’ and Taiwan’s Story
Part of a Series

Author Michael Pollan and film producer Melissa Robledo join the show to discuss the sequel to their groundbreaking 2008 documentary, Food, Inc. They talk about what’s changed in the food industry, the dangers of extreme attacks on regulation, and what progressive leaders are doing to strengthen our food system. Daniella and Colin also speak about the Biden administration’s new student debt relief plan and Donald Trump’s dangerous and ever-changing positions on abortion.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone. A full list of supporters is available here. American Progress would like to acknowledge the many generous supporters who make our work possible.
