Mother Jones’ Tom Philpott joined the 8 O’Clock Buzz on Monday, April 8, 2013, to talk about Bayer’s pesticides, A pesticide that is mainstream in farming and agriculture, used because it is extremely effective in eliminating unwanted insects. However, studies show this pesticide is also responsible for harming bees and birds.

The second Monday of each month we have asked Philpott’s to join us to discuss agricultural investigative journalism.

A brief bio of Tom Philpott’s from Mother Jones: “Tom Philpott is the cofounder of Maverick Farms, a center for sustainable food education in Valle Crucis, North Carolina.
