Robb and Josh welcome food futurist Mike Lee for a sprawling and fascinating exploration of the surprisingly similar worlds of food safety and technology regulation. As the founder of The Future Market, a consultancy in food innovation and strategy, Mike’s investigations into the food industry led to hands-on work with generative AI. This conversation provides forward thinking in how we might regulate the unpredictable and now ubiquitous generative tools flooding into all industries and aspects of life.

Mike Lee is the Co-founder and co-CEO of Alpha Food Labs, a food innovation company that helps companies create innovation strategies and new products that are better for people, planet, and palate. Mike is also the Founder of The Future Market, a futurist food lab that explores what our food system could look like in the next five to 25 years.
