(Buffalo, N.Y.) – On the Buffalo Review this week (May 1) we covered efforts at Buffalo State to reduce food waste, recent controversial advertisements and a new book about old “insane asylums” in New York.

First, we spoke with Glen Bucello, district manager for Chartwells (the Buffalo State dining service provider), and Kristen Helling, assistant director of Student Life, about efforts on campus to reduce food waste.

Next, we spoke with Dr. Seth Over, assistant professor of public communication at Buffalo State, about a number of recent controversial ads, including a Pepsi commercial featuring Kendall Jenner.

In the second half of the show, author Michael Keene joined us to discuss his book, “Mad House: the Hidden History of Insane Asylums in 19th Century New York,” which includes research from newspaper stories, hospital archives and patient letters.
