Guest: Lamorna Ash, author of "Dark, Salt, Clear: The Life of a Fishing Town" Lamorna Ash, a 22-year-old university student from London, traveled to a remote fishing town in Cornwall to gather research for her thesis about how fishing shapes a community. What she finds shapes her own coming-of-age experience. She shares vivid stories from her time on a trawler with four seasoned fishermen, encountering seasickness, all kinds of fish guts, and the constant tension between land and sea, in short—a people and place fading from our urban world.
