Veteran broadcaster Bill Kurtis turns his investigative journalism skills to modern agriculture and how it may have contributed to the obesity crisis in this country. Kurtis is the host of several television programs, including Investigative Reports, Cold Case Files, and American Justice; he also anchors a new program on WBBM-TV in Chicago. In addition, he is the owner of the 8,000-acre Red Buffalo Ranch near Sedan, Kansas, and the founder of Tallgrass Beef Company. This program was taped at Johnson County Community College, where Kurtis was featured in the Kansas Lecture Series, sponsored by the Kansas Studies Institute.
