Meet John Mackey, version 1.0: a meat-eating former philosophy major in his early 20s who moves into a vegetarian cooperative to meet women. Fast forward to 2011, and you’ll meet an updated version: co-founder and CEO of a huge natural and organic grocery company with stores in three countries, advocate for a “company with a conscience” and a major force behind the growth of the local and organic food movement in the US.

Overheard with Evan Smith updates the successful formula of our award-winning series Texas Monthly Talks — great conversation with fascinating people, always on the news and always with a sense of humor.  The new show brings you the same mix of guests from politics, the arts, literature, journalism, business, sports and more, and is being offered to PBS stations nationwide.  Thanks for helping us launch this exciting new program.
