USC Impact: Fermented Foods, Fancy Rats, Urban Gardening

USC Impact recently released a new episode of their award-winning television newsmagazine.

See an excerpt from their monthly newsletter above:

"Welcome to the 2014-2015 season of Impact! My name is Ashley Velez and I am this year’s supervising producer. We have been busy at USC, settling into our brand new Media Center at Wallis Annenberg Hall. With new equipment and technology, we’re excited for our upcoming shows and can’t wait to share them with you! For our latest episode, we explore some unconventional topics with some unconventional people. First, we learn about the possible health benefits of eating fermented food. Then, we meet a few rat enthusiasts who just might change your mind about the four-legged rodents. And finally, we visit with four gardeners who are challenging the law by reclaiming unused public spaces for growing fresh produce.  As always, follow us on Twitter and Instagram and like us on Facebook to keep up with happenings at Impact. Thank you for your continued support, and we hope you enjoy the show!"
