Author/narrator Giles Yeo playfully examines the ubiquitous unit of energy and its implication for our society. Yeo explores the calorie, its history, and what happens/doesn't happen when it enters your body. This narrative extends beyond the typical dos and don'ts of calorie intake to how socioeconomic factors, ideologies, and weaponization by diet cultures affect our food choices. Scientific data is explained in layman's terms, and Yeo's use of entertaining personal anecdotes and references to John Cougar Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane" also keep the narrative relatable, as do his obvious passion for and delight in his subject. This is a listening experience you can count on for delicious-sounding recipes, along with pragmatic tips and other information to improve your food choices.
