Familiar Voices and New Introductions: A Special Around the Horn on ASPN
Update from New Orleans and We Welcome Two New Shows to ASPN
This week, Peter and Tyler gather the ASPN forces to check in with Jacques Hebert and Simon Maloz about the latest from New Orleans and to welcome two new shows and two new hosts to the ASPN family, Brian Yurasits and Bill O'Beirne. Brian's show -- Shaped by the Sea -- will focus on the "characters on the coast," the real folks who live, play, and work on the American shoreline. It's a show about the often overlooked insight and wisdom to be found outside of the halls of government and universities. A great addition coming to ASPN from Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Long Island, NY. Bill O'Bierne is a longtime coastal management insider, having spent 25+ years in NOAA and the Office for Coastal Management. He know the ropes, as they say, when it comes to the implementation of federal coastal policy. Bill's show comes to us from Virginia and focuses on the coming "intensification of coastal issues" as climate change forces ever-more complex tradeoffs among coastal stakeholder groups. Plus, he plays a mean guitar, a decent mandolin, and is an all-round great guy. Both Brian and Bill bring to ASPN "good vibes," as Tyler likes to say. We're jazzed to be expanding ASPN and bringing new talent and new stories to our listeners. Check it out today. ASPN: The Voice of the Coastal Community!
