  Host Joseph Pace will be in conversation with Kirk Lombard about his new book The Sea Forager’s Guide to the Northern California Coast.  

It’s crab season in California, and commercial fishermen can’t unload their catches fast enough to satisfy the crowds filling Fisherman’s Wharf.

They set out their poles, unroll their lines, add some bait, and wait quietly for dinner to arrive.
