In this week's episode of Slate's Table to Farm podcast, Dan and co-host L.V. Anderson talk to a self-described "apple nerd" about apple cloning and genetics, look at ways to get local apples, cook and eat an apple crisp, and play Apple Variety or New England Town.
Stream the episode above and find more installments in the Table to Farm series here. You can also subscribe to the Table to Farm podcast in iTunes or via RSS, and find some apple crisp recipes from the show on Slate.
(And we must give a shout out to the Sporkful's wacky neighbor, Win Rosenfeld of Now This News, who first conceived the game of "Apple Variety or New England Town" when he appeared on The Sporkful for our episode on Comparing Apples and Oranges.)
