016 WATER IS WIDE
A story of activism at sea.
For over 30 years, Peter Willcox has been a sea captain for Greenpeace, an environmental organization based out of Amsterdam. Willcox helps international campaigns against whaling, anti-nuclear activities, and global warming. In this episode, he tells his experiences of growing up in an activist family, his first protest at sea, being attacked by the French government and jailed in Russia. He also shares the history of the Rainbow Warrior, the famous Greenpeace vessel that continues to sail today.

Everything is Stories
EVERYTHING IS STORIES
An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.
Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.
Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.
Produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
