Nick Foster is a graduate student in history at the University of Chicago, writing a dissertation on the Reagan Revolution and the cultural history of finance capitalism. We discuss why Reagan embraced the biggest farm bill in US history, and speculate about the historiography of capitalist agriculture.

When Nick's paper is published we'll edit the show notes to provide a link and tweet about it so you can read it too. In the meantime, all enthusiastic fan mail can be directed to: https://history.uchicago.edu/directory/nicholas-foster
