• Summary

  • SALMONFOLK RADIO is a mixture of contemporary interviews and travelogue tales of how a microbudget film maker from NC (USA) stumbled into the story of where the open net farmed salmon most of us eat comes from and how that truth is stranger than fiction and more dangerous than a lie. This is the world's first podcast dedicated to amplifying the indigenous, activist and scientific voices around the globe regarding the dangers of industrial open net salmon farming. "Salmonfolk" is a community coming into being where we value the connection with wild salmon, get the fish farms out of the world's waters, and cease thinking of salmon as "biomass".

    This is the PILOT episode that launched Salmonfolk Radio, on June 12th, 2021.  In "The Chef Speaks!", you get to hear an unflinching account of why a  5-Star Michelin chef refuses to bring open net farmed salmon into his kitchen. In this colorful and vibrant discussion a story unfolds of how this East End of London born chef, now living in Denmark, has embraced the option of using Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) salmon and why. It's an episode to share with every restaurant and chef you know. 

    If you happen to live in Denmark and are wanting to sample the Chef's artisan RAS smoked salmon that he has put so much time and energy into...

    This PILOT episode is the first of many.

  • Day 1: Tahlequah's Vigil, the Author & The Salish Sea Swimmer

    Aug 24 2021

    In this episode we hear from long time marine naturalist and author Barry Swanson. He wrote  The Lost Frequency. That interview dives into what happened to Tahlequah, also known as "J35". She is an orca who lives in the Salish Sea. As soon as I landed I discovered something shocking. At that same time I was headed to Salt Spring Island, BC in the traditional territory of the Saanich, Cowichan, and Chemainus First Nations., to meet with Rama DelaRosa who was doing a  Swim for the Salish Sea. Rachael Merrett from the Georgia Strait Alliance also makes an appearance in explaining what's going on with the orcas living in the Salish Sea.
