Food and masculinity with Dr. Emily Contois

Food is everywhere -- we can't live without it. And gender is everywhere too. And food is more than just fuel; it's big business. So there should be no surprise that food becomes gendered in its branding, marketing, and in popular culture. Prof. Emily Contois of the University of Oklahoma is the author of "Diners, Dudes and Diets", a book that examines this phenomenon.
