🎧 Persephone’s secret – The Eleusinian Mysteries and the making of the modern economy (Eat This)

Listened Persephone’s secret The Eleusinian Mysteries and the making of the modern economy by Jeremy Cherfas from eatthispodcast.com

Jeremy Cherfas speaks with Scott Reynolds Nelson about his book Oceans of Grain. The conversations are broken up into the themes of transport, finance and empire.

It is fascinating to consider the impact that grain has had on so many significant historical events. I remember hearing Marilyn Lake talk about having a global perspective, this is a great example of this.
