Indigestion: Living amid hog CAFOs with Guest Sherri White-Williamson
November 14, 2023
In this episode of Unconfined, we’re focusing on a topic that’s generating a lot of excitement among meat industry execs and concern among people who live in CAFO country: methane digesters. Tom and Christine open with a brief explainer: What are methane digesters, and how are they related to biogas and methane? Then we hear from environmental justice advocate Sherri White-Williamson, who grew up in eastern North Carolina and watched its transformation from a stronghold of small-scale African-American agrarianism to a global epicenter of industrial-scale hog production—and what it’s like on the ground to add methane digesters to the mix.
