The Atlantic Ocean: A Biography/The Health of the Bay
Five hundred years ago, Amerigo Vespucci first realized the scope and size of the body of water that lay between Europe and the new world. With that revelation, The Atlantic Ocean quickly became the key Western Civilization. On today’s broadcast, we’ll talk with author Simon Winchester about his biography of The Atlantic Ocean. Later in the program, we’ll talk with Will Baker, president of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and get an update on the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
Simon Winchester - author, “The Atlantic: Great Sea Battles, Heroic Discoveries, Titanic Storms, and a Vast Ocean of a Million Stories.”
