A wise man once said, "To the Dolphin alone, beyond all other, nature has granted what the best philosophers seek: friendship for no advantage."

Does the captain of a fishing fleet have what it takes to follow his conscience and listen to nature’s voice? Will he take a stand against the corrupt fisheries system by putting his livelihood on the line?

Dive into 'Finny Business' as Thibaud Durand, captain of a French fishing vessel, and his men get caught in a thunderstorm in the Bay of Biscay and how the life-changing moments that follow spark his conscience to face up to his boss, stay firm against the corrupt system and put his money where his mouth is.

This episode sheds light on the conflict between man and nature due to overfishing and looks forward to potentially sustainable solutions to safeguard the species diversity in exploited marine ecosystems.

Help the dolphins in the Bay of Biscay! Thousands of them die over the winter season, as they are incidentally trapped in fishing nets.

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
