Introducing "North Coast Chronicles: Tales from the Great Lakes" with Helen Brohl
Welcome the ASPN Helen!
On this episode, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham welcome Helen Brohl to the show to talk about her new show coming out on ASPN later this month, "North Coast Chronicles: Tales from the North Coast." Carved 14,000 years ago, the Great Lakes are the freshwater seas of America's North Coast. Over 1200 miles from the mouth of the entrance to the St. Lawrence River to Duluth, Minnesota, they offer diverse ecology, flora, fauna, fish ~ and human experiences. On her new show, Helen will explore all of these elements of the Great Lakes with experts and local characters, bringing the North Coast to life. Helen was appointed as the first Executive Director of the US Committee on the Marine Transportation System in July 2006 by Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta. As a career Senior Executive, Ms. Brohl manages the CMTS partnership, that joins over 25 Federal agencies to address our Nation’s waterways, ports and intermodal connections. Working with senior political, military and civilian leaders, Ms. Brohl directs development of interagency policy coordination related to Federal infrastructure investment; system performance measures; navigation technology integration and coordination; and system resilience. She's a pro! But, Helen's show is about the culture, history and people of the Great Lakes region. Smart people, great characters. I am looking forward to this addition. Welcome to ASPM, Helen!
