The Rice Chronicles, Part 6: Where the Wild Rice Grows

We’re continuing our rice series by not talking about rice. Instead, we head to North America to talk about an aquatic grain that has played a central role in Indigenous cuisine across the Great Lakes region for centuries. We discuss how wild rice is harvested, the role of wild rice in the origin story of the Ojibwe, and the evolution of the wild rice economy. Finally, we give you a glimpse into our storied podcast planning process.
