As a journalist specializing in food issues, Anna worked at the Nordic Food Lab in Copenhagen in 2015 where she produced a series of podcasts for ‘Nordic Food Lab Radio’ about her time living in a reindeer herding village in Sápmi (Sweden), and most recently produced two seasons of ‘Ox Tales’, a food history podcast for the Oxford Food Symposium in the UK.
