Every Sunday, we round up our favorite food reads (podcasts, and videos) from the week, so you can sit back with that cup of coffee and settle in to catch up on what's happening in the world of food.

Today: Growing tomatoes in space, the benefits (yes, benefits) of artificial sweeteners, and the science of soggy cereal.
