Criminal Foods
In this episode, we explore the criminalization of three popular edible plants within Palestine with our guest Rabea Eghbariah. Zaatar, akkoub, and mirimiya are famously associated with Palestine, and yet there is currently a legal ban on their picking, possession, and trade. We discuss the cultural and economic history of these plants within Palestine as well as the history and significance of the legal ban by the Israeli Nature and Parks Authority.

Sustainable Farming Practices Within Palestine
In the inaugural episode of Palestine: In Between, I'll be speaking with Raya Ziada of Manjala, a grassroots cultural and agricultural initiative within Palestine as well as Yara Dowani, a manager and farmer at Om Sleiman farm, the first CSA in Palestine. We'll be discussing the unique challenges faced by farmers within the Occupied West Bank's Area C, ancestral agricultural Palestinian practices being revived today, agroecology, and how sustainable farming can be a path to food sovereignty for Palestinians.  Music: Three Colors by Podington Bear.
