A short programming note, for those of you not already tired of hearing me go on about Maine politics, history, and culture:
Tonight at 10pm, the television stations of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network will be airing Linda Cabot's documentary on the people, crustaceans, and creatures of the Gulf of Maine, From the Bow Seat. I'm one of the featured talking heads on account of Lobster Coast, but you'll also hear from Sherm Stanley, Diane Cowan, Steve Kress and other experts. It airs again Saturday at 11 am.
For Portlanders, at 7:30 tonight, I'll be one of the live guests on WMPG's Big Talk, discussing Maine politics with Kennebec Journal columnist Mike Tipping and Sun Journal state house correspondent Steve Mistler (if he can get a free moment up in Augusta.) I understand a podcast will be available later at Tipping's Maine Politics website.
I am an award-winning journalist and author of American Nations, American Character, Ocean's End, The Lobster Coast, and The Republic of Pirates. I'm a staffer at the Portland Press Herald, where I won a 2012 George Polk Award for my investigative reporting and was named a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
