Carolyn Cobbold, A Rainbow Palate, How Chemical Dyes Changed the West’s Relationship with Food
Carolyn Cobbold is a research fellow at the University of Cambridge, where she investigates the history of food and science. Her work has been published in Annals of ScienceOsirisAmbix, and Business Insurance, among others.

We live in a world saturated by chemicals—our food, our clothes, and even our bodies play host to hundreds of synthetic chemicals that did not exist before the nineteenth century. By the 1900s, a wave of bright coal tar dyes had begun to transform the Western world. Originally intended for textiles, the new dyes soon permeated daily life in unexpected ways, and by the time the risks and uncertainties surrounding the synthesized chemicals began to surface, they were being used in everything from clothes and home furnishings to cookware and food.

In A Rainbow Palate, Carolyn Cobbold explores how the widespread use of new chemical substances influenced perceptions and understanding of food, science, and technology, as well as trust in science and scientists. Because the new dyes were among the earliest contested chemical additives in food, the battles over their use offer striking insights and parallels into today’s international struggles surrounding chemical, food, and trade regulation.

Hartglass & De Mattei, Let’s Go On
Let’s talk about the weather! Caryn Hartglass & Gary De Mattei discuss the weather and global warming; visiting New Hampshire and Vermont, discovering a new Squash, and recipes for Thanksgiving. They touch on the election, truth, art and politics. Caryn shares a song from one of her albums called I Go On from Bernstein’s Mass. The lyrics are below.


Lyrics to I Go On, sung by Caryn Hartglass:
When the thunder rumbles now the age of gold is dead.
And the dreams we’ve clung to,
dying to stay young
have left us parched and old instead.
When my courage crumbles,
When i feel confused and frail.
When my spirit falters, on decaying alters.
And my illusions fade.
I go on right then.
I go on again.
I go on to say I will celebrate another day.
I go on.
If tomorrow tumbles,
and everything I love is gone,
I will face regret,
All my days and yet
I will still go on.
Lauda- de- da- de- dae.
