This Week, our podcast Actuality gorges itself on caviar to understand why the supply chain behind a luxury good is more important than ever. Also, a semi-aquatic, invasive rodent may solve the “fur is murder” problem. Plus, the market in gothic poultry.
Our story on the Petrossian caviar business was inspired by Iran’s potential return of Iran to the global caviar market—which has a good chance of happening if a nuclear deal leads to the end of trade sanctions. We’re also joined by Jenni Avins, Quartz’s lifestyle reporter, who talks to us about ways to wear fur ethically; and Michael Massimi, who runs a program that tries to do just that.
