A Field Guide to Whale Creek is a self-guided audio tour and field guide pamphlet (available for download at www.newtowncreekfieldguide.com). These tools add insights to the strange beauty of the post-natural landscape accessible via the Newtown Creek Nature Walk, designed by George Trakas. You can reach the site in Greenpoint, Brooklyn by G train, bicycle or car. Just look for the enormous digester eggs belonging to the DEP’s Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.

We all want to be better people - and Christians want to be better servants of God. But often we find ourselves waiting to be forced into good service, rather than making the tough choices in our everyday lives. Thus, our protestations to the contrary, we are often "Waiting for the Whale" to come along, swallow us up, and force us to be good, bold Christians, like the reluctant Jonah.But what should we be doing? How ought we to live if we listened to God and acted without having to experienc ...
 
Arlington VA Public Library is reading "Moby-Dick" this summer, and we're going to have a seriously good time while we do it. Each week on the podcast, librarians Jennie, Megan, Pete and special guests will discuss the reading, drop pop culture references, and ask or answer questions that come up during the Sunday discussion.
 
An eco fable for families and schools. A magical story of a whale mother's journey with her calf and what happens when they meet their deadliest enemy - plastic. written by Belona Greenwood, original music and soundscape by Fred Robinson, read by Adina Levay.
 
Join Ben and Mark as we read through Moby Dick! We'll discuss each chapter in turn and do our best to make sense of this famously dense maritime adventure. Along the way, we'll get to know our new best friend Ishmael and learn some questionable whale facts. Episodes will be released biweekly until we catch up to our backlog, and then the show will release monthly.

New York -- the Gilded Age -- a time of crime and villainy! What sort of evil lurks here in the heart of the city? Find out in this short prologue to Book 1: The Land Whale Murders -- a comedy of birders, murders, and ... a missing whale! The Land Whale Murders is a Roi Gold Production it was written by Jonathan A. Goldberg with music by Matt Roi B…
 
Update your logbooks, everyone. This week, we have the last episode of relatively normal chapters before the chase begins. But ‘relatively’ doesn’t mean much: Ahab’s intensity has reached fever pitch, and everyone on board has to deal with it. The carpenter shows up and Ben does hand gestures on a podcast again, Pip and Ahab have a series of moment…
 
The Pequod has entered the Pacific, and Ishmael is delighted by the mild sea. Ahab’s deep and tempestuous thoughts, however, take up most of these chapters. We meet the blacksmith, who would be singularly unhappy if Ahab wasn’t right there, and witness the creation of a lance to slay God. From there, we dwell on the beauty of the ocean’s surface, a…
 
In this episode, the material world of the Pequod looms large, as does its materials. Instead of getting a new friend, Ahab gets a new leg, and we meet the carpenter. He gets a whole chapter to himself, describing him more or less schematically. After that, we try something a bit different: Since Chapter 108 is entirely a dialogue between Ahab and …
 
This week, we delve deep into the prehistory of whales, and from there, consider their most remote future. But first, an extended examination of Dutch and English whaleship supplies in a chapter Ben grades ‘passable.’ There’s 135 of them, they can’t all be winners. But after that, the whale’s skeleton beckons us through elaborate Gnostic imagery to…
 
This week, we have some excellent Ahab content. First, in “The Doubloon,” we discuss the hermeneutics by which the crew of the Pequod interpret the markings on Ahab’s golden prize, promised to whoever sights Moby Dick. Ishmael presents us with interpretations ranging from the conventional to the indecipherable, and we discover that this is a coin t…
 
Well, here it is, what Mark’s called ‘the orgy chapter.’ It’s part of the elaborate processing of the whale for oil, which (in a somewhat chronologically weird way) we’re finishing up this episode. Ishmael experiences a deep and squishy benevolence for all mankind; some weird parts of the whale are discussed; eventually, everything is cleared up an…
 
After some development on the theme of ‘royal authority is kind of unjust, huh,’ in connection with fast-fish and loose-fish, we move on to another meeting with another whale-ship (no gam). And, in the Pequod’s meeting with the less than fragrant Rose-Bud, the love of grey gold leads men to do terrible things. Or at least Stubb commits some obnoxio…
 
We forge ahead now with the Grand Armada - when Ben stops talking about semi-related matters, anyways. In this wild and piratical chapter, the Pequod pursues and is pursued, Starbuck’s crew witness the secret hidden bowers of the whale, and we learn of the forbidden flavor. After all that, of course, Ishmael needs to take a break to talk entirely a…
 
This week we’re reading Chapters 85 and 86, The Tail and The Fountain - we are not reading 87, The Grand Armada, because there was just too much there to add on after we talked about two of the whale’s most noble attributes (according to Ishmael, who doesn’t seem to find much ignoble in the whale). There’s some amazing sentences, some more whale an…
 
As is not unusual, we had a hard time making these chapters into a coherent lump - once again, Ishmael is all over the place. However, that’s to our listener’s benefits, as Ishmael is petty about rival whalers, somewhat overstates the historical and mythological importance of whale-slaying, gets into questions of Biblical exegesis, and then mostly …
 
It’s time to finally get inside a whale’s head. It’s a dangerous place, and we have some swashbuckling to save a crewmate from getting too deep into it. We’ll also travel around one, compare some, and apply the caliper sciences to them. There’s a surprising amount of geometry, some swordplay, and references to great moments in the history of scienc…
 
We’ll have no gam this time, friends - this episode, we try to figure out what thread goes through the three chapters we read, which cover a pretty wide variety of topics and forms. First, we hear the story of the Jeroboam, a distinctly unlucky ship. Not only do they have an epidemic aboard, which is why there’s no gam, they also have a prophet, wh…
 
Time to dismantle a whale, dear listeners. Time to dismantle a whale. Be warned, it gets quite gory. In this episode, we first listen to Stubb harangue the cook (and, while reading it, we try to dodge quoting some extremely dodgy eye dialect) before Ishmael gets on his high horse about eating whale-meat. Then we have The Shark Massacre overnight as…
 
This episode, Ishmael keeps it brief with a number of short chapters touching on a variety of topics. In Brit we see right whales eating, and this inspires him to rhapsodize about the horrors of the deep. Then, in Squid, the Pequod witnesses what sperm whales eat and science has yet to understand. The Line is inserted, to explain how the rope coils…
 
Ishmael has decided we need a primer on the various images available of whales, before we return to the ongoing narrative. First, he gives us his scorching takes Of The Monstrous Pictures of Whales, and explains how science doesn’t know what it’s looking at, whalewise. Then he grudgingly admits to some accuracy, giving the nod Of the Less Erroneous…
 
Sit down with us, and hear Ishmael spin a yarn in later years with his friends in Lima, Peru: In Chapter 54, The Town-Ho’s Story, Ishmael shares what he learned at a gam with the crew of the Town-Ho, off the Cape of Good Hope. For the duration, we’re on a ship very unlike the Pequod, though she’s also a whaler, and will eventually encounter the Whi…
 
Strange signs have begun to dog the Pequod, and we’re just thrilled. In Chapter 51, the crew are enthralled by The Spirit-Spout as it floats eerily before them in the night. The language is beautiful and the sights strange as the Pequod rounds the Cape of Good Hope. In those cold seas we cross wakes with The Goney (which is why the chapter is calle…
 
This episode, the crew of the Pequod launch the whaleboats! In The Mat-Maker we join Ishmael and Queequeg as they lie around on deck not doing much, until - THAR SHE BLOWS! - whales are sighted for the first time. Then we follow along through the frenzy as foreshadowing is fulfilled, new characters introduced, and the boats lowered in The First Low…
 
We're back, again! We start out with Hark!, an exercise in pure foreshadowing: is there an unknown person on the Pequod? The Chart introduces us to Ahab's enormously detailed efforts in tracking Moby Dick through the entirety of the world's oceans. We also learn about his metaphysically complicated night terrors. In The Affidavit, Ishmael makes the…
 
Today it's all about the singular attribute of Moby Dick that, to Ishmael at least, most powerfully invests him with terror: the color white. Ishmael spends a whole lengthy chapter doing his best to explain what's so scary about whiteness and therefore about a white whale, and ultimately can't quite make the connection for us. We do our best to del…
 
Taking a slight detour from Moby Dick and from whaling (mostly), for this episode we watched the film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Ben and Mark are both captivated by the minutiae of the world of tall ships. We also both shake our heads a bit at how right Stephen Maturin gets to be about everything relating to science, and how m…

In this episode, we discuss Moby Dick. Finally. Ishmael does his best to sort fact from fantasy and give as full an accounting as he can of the white whale, and Ahab's obsession with it. This provides the basis for a free-wheeling, nearly three-hour discussion which I hope you enjoy but which I can't really summarize. Next episode we zero in on one…
 
The narrative is back at full sail, as Ahab calls a meeting to discuss whaling and philosophy with the crew, and the Whale Statements team finds our new sign-off. He explains his purpose and the crew are on board, literally, except for First Mate Starbuck who thinks it’s stupid to try to get revenge on a whale. Ahab does not agree. We are extremely…
 
Today we have another grab-bag of a reading, getting us up to speed on a number of different topics relating to daily life on the Pequod. Ishmael introduces us to the role of the "specksynder", or chief harpooneer, and stakes out a clear Harpooners' Rights position. He characterizes Ahab as an ideal Kantian absolute monarch and also as The Divine I…
 
This episode gets off to a leisurely start with some chitchat about video games and sailing, then we settle in for a nice long introduction to Ahab. The man who commands the Pequod makes his first appearance on deck and on the page, cutting an extremely dramatic figure. His ivory leg and mysterious mark fascinate us just as they do the crew of the …
 
James speaks to the Chair of Action Radiotherapy about the backlog of cancer patients that aren't receiving treatment because of the pandemic. Christine Jardine from the Lib Dems and Alex Phillips from the Brexit Party come on to debate the Internal Markets Bill.
