We welcome back Ian Urbina who was on Rising Tide’s first episode. The former NY Times reporter’s Outlaw Ocean series became a bestselling book and now the The Outlaw Ocean Project. We discuss his latest reporting for the New Yorker magazine on how thousands of climate refugees from Africa seeking to cross the Mediterranean are being seized by Libyan Militias who also kidnapped and beat Ian while he was working on this story. We’ll also talk about lack of law enforcement at sea, the link between music and journalism and more.
