During lockdown, our entire world has rediscovered the joys of breadmaking. But what is the supernatural phenomenon, indeed the Christian miracle, behind your sourdough starter? Why is baking bread a life lesson in death and resurrection?  And how does it celebrate bacteria, pathogens, and all those other disgusting microbes floating around us? Professor Eric Pallant, one of the world's leading experts on the history and science of bread, joins us. Eric Pallant is Chairman of the Department of Environmental Science and Sustainability at Allegheny College. He is the author of the forthcoming book (2021), "The Culture of Sourdough: The History and Science of Sourdough."
