Moral – The path to a story is not always straight. Sometimes it’s circular.

Zach Barr studied radio at Salt in the spring of 2003. He was a story telling machine. He couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a story. On this Saltcast, we listen to his piece about the sea cucumber industry in Maine — “Smells Like Money to Me” .

But, on this SaltCast you get two for the price of one. Zach and I recall the story about the Russian Mail Order Bride and bloodworms. Really.

As always, please post a comment to the blog.

Yours in radio,
