Moo-Dunnit: How Beef Replaced Bison on the American Plains—and Plate

Gastropod

Arts

Saddle up, folks: Today’s episode involves the cowboys' lullabies and meat riots that helped make beef an American birthright. With the help of Joshua Specht, author of Red Meat Republic, we tell the story of how and why the 30 million bison that roamed the Plains were replaced with 30 million cows. You'll never look at a Porterhouse steak—the first cut of beef invented in America—the same way again.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
