Maine Sea Grant just launched a new radio program!

by Catherine Schmitt

Coastal Conversations is a monthly, one-hour public affairs program about coastal issues, on WERU Community Radio 89.9 in Blue Hill and 99.9 In Bangor.

The first show aired on January 23, 2015 and the topic was Ocean Acidification. Listen to the podcast.

Produced with support from Maine Sea Grant and hosted by Natalie Springuel (guest-hosts will include Paul Anderson, Catherine Schmitt, and Dana Morse), Coastal Conversations is a public affairs program that explores current issues facing Maine’s coastal communities through conversations with people who live, work, and play on our coast. From fisheries to tourism, from energy to environment, from economy to ecology, Coastal Conversations goes beyond the social media sound bites, probing deeply into complex issues facing our coast and the creative solutions Maine people are using to solve them.

For future topics covered on the show, and much more, visit Coastal Conversations Radio Program.

So, tune in to WERU Community Radio (89.9 in Blue Hill and 99.9 in Bangor) on the fourth Friday of each month from 10 to 11 AM and streaming live online at
