Reviewing The Living Coast, Upcoming Shows, and News Talk

We discuss their experience seeing The Living Coast

Peter and Tyler take a tour of the top shows on American Shoreline Podcast Network and take a look at the week ahead.  Plus, they dive deep into The Living Coast, which premiered in Austin August 2.   Composer Justin Sherburn joined forces with filmmaker Anlo Sepulveda to produce an original film about the Texas Gulf coast accompanied by a live concert score.  It was a phenomenal event that will be going on tour soon so we share a bit about what you too can see.

Peter Ravella & Tyler Buckingham

Peter and Tyler joined forces in 2015 and from the first meeting began discussing a project that would become Coastal News Today and the American Shoreline Podcast Network. At the time, Peter and Tyler were coastal consultants for Pete’s firm, PAR Consulting, LLC. In that role, they worked with coastal communities in Texas, Florida, and North Carolina, engaged in grant writing, coastal project development, shoreline erosion and land use planning, permitting, and financial planning for communities undertaking big beach restoration projects. Between and among their consulting tasks, they kept talking and kept building the idea of CNT & ASPN. In almost every arena they worked, public engagement played a central role. They spent thousands of hours talking with coastal stakeholders, like business owners, hotel operators, condo managers, watermen, property owners, enviros, surfers, and fishermen. They dived deep into the value, meaning, and responsibility for the American shoreline, segment-by-segment. Common threads emerged, themes were revealed, differences uncovered. There was a big conversation going on along the American shoreline! But, no place to have it. That's where CNT and ASPN were born.
