Penobscot Bay Report w/ Ron Huber

 

For people who enjoy, work on and care about Maine’s biggest bay. While relaxing to the natural and human sounds of Penobscot Bay–its waves, winds and wildlife; its foghorns, fishing craft and ferryboats–get your weekly update on the doings of local, state and federal agencies and interest groups grappling with overseeing the bay’s commercial and recreational fishers and hunters, aquaculturists, coastal developer wannabes, and its licensed and unlicensed dischargers.

Hear recordings from recent bay-related meetings and public hearings, interviews with retired and working sea captains and readings from 19th century marine scientists exploring and documenting the state of the bay and the Gulf of Maine before the twentieth century’s mechanized fisheries, petrochemicals and other advanced technology changed them forever. And learn how to become a Penobscot Bay Report radio correspondent!

Meat & Potatoes w/ Sonja Sleeper

Meat & Potatoes w/ Sonja Sleeper

Sonja Sleeper is your host.  This show is about the basics: what, who, where, and even the occasional why.  But what does that mean? Topics to be discussed can be anything. How about some tips on modern etiquette?  Ecology? When to clear your yard in the spring for optimum overwintering creature survival? How about the mysteries of property appraisal?

This is educational with a bit of humour, so we can all have a better understanding of the world around us via the little things. I came up with this idea because for me the day to day practicalities just weren’t there. We need to know more about the world around us without headlines and sound bites or a sales pitch.  I will not pretend to be an expert or have a degree in the topic but I do promise to have done my homework.   The format is not fully developed now, it will be a work in progress, there will be some music mixed in, a random thoughts section and a central topic to start.
