Phil Willink, from the fish division at The Field Museum, discusses Asian carp on show No. 2 for "Outside" at 4:30 p.m. today on WKCC-FM (91.1).
That's him in 2004 helping with the great snakehead hunt in Burnham Harbor.
Joel Greenberg and I kicked around a radio show idea for years. I feel like we hit our stride with Willink.
"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM, a start-up public radio station in Kankakee.
The topic with Willink is Asian carp. He has a wonderful site for information on Asian carp.
The show fits in our general aim: filtering modern outdoors through our experience, then putting it in a historical context.

Show No. 2 gives me more pride, a sense of what we can do with "Outside."
