A Sea Captain's Stories

Linda Greenlaw is a fishing boat captain, and also the author of five bestselling nonfiction books about life as a commercial fisherman. Greenlaw is familiar to many because she was featured in Sebastian Junger’s best selling book The Perfect Storm, where he described her as not just the only female sword fishing captain, but "one of the best captains, period, on the entire East Coast." On The Point, we talk about that storm, and about her latest book Shiver Hitch. Linda Greenlaw will be at the Working Waterfront Festival on Saturday September 23rd.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
