Catch 'em All

Catch 'em All 
Fishing is a sport that rewards patience. Passing time between bites, anglers tell stories and recount old triumphs. For New Hampshire fishermen Dave Kellem and Clay Groves, shooting the breeze one day led to an idea: to catch and cook every single type of freshwater fish in New Hampshire.

A little more than a year ago, the two grabbed lines & tackle and headed into New Hampshire waters. The list was long - 48 species - some were hard to find, and to add a twist, a couple were poisonous. But, they're making their way through the list undaunted, fish by fish, including bluegill, pickerel, yellow perch and .... yes, even goldfish. We check in with Clay and Dave to hear how the quest to catch 'em all is going.

GUESTS
 Clay Groves and Dave Kellem are two anglers who have set out to catch and eat every species of freshwater fish in New Hampshire.

Walter Mosley on The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey


Walter MosleyLate last year, Walter Mosley joined us to talk about his latest novel, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. Mosley’s protagonist, Ptolemy Grey, is an old, ailing recluse living in a dump of a cluttered apartment. His mind, on a downward spiral of dementia, is equally cluttered with a mashup of memories: the death of his wife, the lynching of a friend, his service in World War II. Then everything changes when he’s offered a Faustian bargain—a drug that will restore his brain in exchange for a shorter life. He takes the plunge, hoping mental clarity will help him solve a murder. Though Mosley may be best known for detective novels, his writing spans all genres: literary fiction, science fiction, crime and social commentary. In The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, Mosely uses threads from all of these styles to tell the story of mortality and morality.
