Strictlyfishwrap Science Radio Hour: Episode 5

Author: Skylar Bayer

Happy Independence day! The podcast from last week’s recording is posted!  The interview is with Dr. Damian Brady, a research scientist based at University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center. My interview with Damian is about the New England Sustainability Consortium — a project dedicated to understanding water quality issues across multiple disciplines.

For this week in science, check out the facebook page for a few of the links I posted. There’s a really long article on yeti crabs that I talk about a bit too much but c’mon… they’re yeti crabs!

I ended the show with a Story Collider tale in the outback of Australia told by Laura Poppick, a science writer residing in Portland, Maine.

Speaking of The Story Collider, we are very excited about our next show on July 22nd at One Longfellow Square. Tickets should definitely still be available.

Aaaand, I was on MPBN’s Maine Calling last week talking about storytelling along some admirable storytellers. Stephen King even called in! Take a listen here.

Music breaks: The Gammy Bird by Christopher Young, Same Love by Ryan Lewis & Macklemore (feat. Mary Lambert), Love that dirty water by The Standells.

Check it out on Sound Cloud here (

If you are interested in being on the show as a guest (you can call in, too!) or have suggestions, comments or questions, just email me at strictlyfishwrap [at] gmail [dot] com.

Next show should be July 12th. If cancelled, next one will be July 26th.

  1. I was in Maine last week doing fieldwork for my river herring project. In between sites while in the truck, we turned on npr and immediately heard you on Maine Calling. Funny. Glad things are going well for you. Joel
