Ecotrust's Food Hub, Dangerous Dungeness and Political Spats at the Holiday Table
OUR DECEMBER SHOW FEATURES:
- EcoTrust's Deborah Kane joins us to discuss the non-profit's new FoodHub (food-hub.org), which connects institutional food buyers directly to local farmers. She stayed on to briefly discuss Ecotrust's new study that shows, in the case of fish, frozen is often better than fresh.
- Then we chat with Newport attorney Michele Longo Eder about her book, Salt in Our Blood: The Memoir of a Fisherman's Wife. It’s a tribute to her late son, who died in 2001 when his boat overturned during the start on Dugeness crab season in Yaquina Bay. Laura Anderson, co-owner of Local Ocean Seafoods, joins in to update on us on prospects for this year's crab season and answers questions about the sustainability of this catch.

- On a lighter note, we talk with folk musician Gwen Thomas about how to handle those difficult, sometimes unwanted guests at your holiday table. And you'll hear Gwen and Terri Grayum's CD "Road Trip" during our music transitions.
