We talk a lot about factory farming and battery cages around here, but how did our food system get where we are today? A very cheesy 1948 short gives a glimpse into the roots of factory farming here in the U.S. Enjoy the short (and the MST3K riffing) right here.
What does riffing on bad sci-fi films have to do with Monsanto? Usually, not much, which is why I was surprised to hear a reference to the biotech giant in an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K).
