In recognition of this year’s Common Theme, we offer an informal conversation about renowned “food” author Michael Pollan’s fascinating book linking four fundamental human desires—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato.
