Michael Pollan to talk food rules with Oprah

Berkeleyside exclusive: We have it on good authority — from the horse’s mouth so to speak — that Berkeley author and UC prof Michael Pollan will be appearing on the Oprah show in the very near future.

Pollan was traveling to Chicago yesterday to tape the show where he will no doubt be discussing what we should and should not be eating, following the recent publication of his latest book Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual.

It won’t be the first time Pollan and Oprah have chatted. The writer appeared on the show via Skype from his Berkelely home on April 22 last year.

Watch this space for when the program will air.
