Before you are halfway through that super-sized box of Valentine’s candy you might check out this Behind the Mic chat with Mike Chamberlain. You’ll be surprised to hear some of author Gary Taubes’s controversial arguments in THE CASE AGAINST SUGAR.  

“I took a moment from time to time with my director to just talk about the facts.” —Narrator Mike Chamberlain
