Short Description: 
The dark side of shark's fin soup; Grand Central Bakery Fair; Wild About Game
We're back after a summer hiatus!
First, we'll look at the local (and international) controversy over shark's fin soup. Researchers estimate that as many as 73 million sharks are slaughtered each year for their fins. We have two in-studio guests. Portland scuba diver Phil Tobin launched a successful local campaign to get Wong's King Seafood restaurants to remove the Catonese delicacy from their menu. And China anthropologist Tami Blumenfield will give us a cultural perspective on this contentious food. It's worth noting that shark cartilage is widely used here in the West, as a medicinal supplement. It's probably in that glucosamine-chondroitin supplement you're taking for your joints!

Then, on a sunnier note, Grand Central Bakery co-owner Piper Davis tells us about a country fair and urban farming expo Saturday at the bakery's North Freemont location. And she'll tempt us with seasonal recipes from The Grand Central Baking Book.
Finally, Nicky USA owner Geoff Latham gives us the skinny on his 10th annual "Wild About Game" cook-off.
