It’s a very collaborative process. He is challenging in all the best ways. He can outtalk, outwit, outhumor anybody who’s trying to argue with him, and sometimes that gets your ire up. But ultimately you take that ire and channel it into the show.

Fast Company senior editor Jason Feifer has strong opinions. Many, many strong opinions.
But he isn’t just some maniac howling at the moon. He’s our maniac howling at the moon—and he’s really smart and often makes very good points.

So what better week than this one—following the People’s Climate March and during the UN Climate Change Summit—to talk about meat alternatives?

On this episode of The 29th FloorFast Company's Noah Robischon and Mark Wilson do just that, digging into everything from veggie-shaped ribs to what it might take to create the perfect fake burger.
