ASPN's New Carolina Coast Podcast, Up Close on a Whale Rescue & A Chesapeake Bay Check In
Whale rescue, a new ASPN podcast & Chesapeake Bay Foundation
On this packed episode, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham first check in with Steve and Annie (Dorrie) Mercer to preview their new father/daughter show on ASPN, the Carolina Coast Podcast. This is a show all about getting to know the interesting personalities and characters who live and work on the Carolina Coast. Then, we check in with Captain Paul Aramal, owner of Towboat US Ventura, a marine assist and rescue company based in Ventura, CA. Earlier this month, Paul led a volunteer effort to free an entangled humpback whale off the Channel Islands. His account of how the rescue was carried out is a must-hear story. We conclude the show with a fascinating discussion with Karen Mullin and AJ Metcalf, both of The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, to learn about how CBF has adapted its education programming in the face of stay home orders and social distancing. Its a packed show to kick off another busy week on the American Shoreline!
