The Fight for Local Seafood and the Fight for Improving the Reality Television Industry
Wednesday, July 02, 2014
Paul Greenberg investigates the unraveling of the nation’s seafood supply...and looks at why we don’t eat fish caught in our own waters. Director Steve James and Chaz Ebert, Roger Ebert’s widow, talk about the influential film critic’s life and work. Jeffery Renard Allen talks about his new novel, Song of the Shank, about an autistic 19th century slave who was a musical genius. And we’ll discuss the working conditions of producers working in reality television—who routinely work 12 or 14 hour days, 7 days a week with no overtime or benefits.
