Just Eat It: Why food waste matters

Presented by The Water Main from American Public Media, and hosted by Marketplace's Jed Kim, "Just Eat It" presents the environmental challenges of food production and waste in a way that entertains and inspires change, rather than guilt.

APM Honors

This subset of the APM Celebrates package covers topics that require more reflection than 'celebration,' such as Veterans Day. These programs are available as part of the larger package.


Kaddish: Reflections on the Holocaust in Music and Words (2017 encore)

This moving program draws upon the memories of Holocaust survivors, as recorded in conversation with APM classical music host Mindy Ratner. Each story is unique, but all contrast tragedy with a sense of courage, resilience, and serendipity, often in astonishing circumstances. The narrative is scored throughout with works by composers whose lives were affected by the Holocaust, including: Gideon Klein, Lukas Foss, Paul Ben-Haim, Ilse Weber, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, and Krzysztof Penderecki
