Pigs, Pork, and Heartland Hogs-From Wild Boar to Baconfest

From the invention of blood sausage by the Assyrians to the creation of such American icons as barbecue and hot dogs, pig has remained on the menu for all but a few notable people groups. Celebrated at fairs and looked to for medical research, pigs offer culinary delight and potential promise but also create some challenges. Hear author and food historian, Cynthia Clampitt, discuss the importance of pork and how it has become a staple in many diets today.
