Where Have All the Fish Gone?

Fans of science and radio rejoice: The Field Trip is a new podcast series dedicated to bringing you your science fix in smart and entertaining little audio packages, each one the perfect length for a commute, treadmill session, or getting-ready-for-work time. 

The Field Trip crew has graciously allowed us to share their second episode with Mother Jones readers. The topic: fish. “To discover why so many of them seem to be disappearing from the world’s seas,” writes the crew, “we talk with Captain Mike Hudson, a commercial salmon fisherman, and Dr. Luiz Rocha at the California Academy of Sciences.” Have a listen. (And once you’re done with that, listen to the first episode here. The topic of that one is Mars, and you won’t want to miss the explanation of why showering in space is really very dangerous.)

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
