Remembering Thane Tienson, a great coastal advocate

Thane Tienson, co-host of the Changing Waters Podcast, was known as a champion for the environment, for underdogs and long-shot good causes, and for the working waterfront along West Coast. As many of our listeners know, Thane died in January. For this tribute show we focus on his remarkable contributions as a professional and colleague. Here we present Brad’s interviews with two of Thane’s old friends and colleagues: Steve Fick, owner of Fishhawk Fisheries, and Brett VandenHeuvel, executive director of the Columbia Riverkeeper.
