Join investigative reporter Ian Urbina and nationally syndicated environmental radio show Living on Earth for a discussion for Urbina’s new book, “The Outlaw Ocean: Journeys Across the Last Untamed Frontier.”
Urbina’s book tours a lawless and rampantly criminal world that few have ever seen: the untamed ocean, one of the last frontiers on our planet. The high seas are too big to police, and under no clear international authority, so these immense regions of treacherous water play host to rampant criminality and exploitation.
This event is part of Good Reads on Earth, a series of events where public radio program Living on Earth holds live radio interviews with authors of the latest environmental books. To learn more about Living on Earth, please visit loe.org.
