I was contacted by ABC, Australian Broadcasting Corporation the summer of 2013, before I left South Korea to go to Brazil. They wanted to pick my brain about the prospect and viability of commercial whaling in South Korea. I had no idea that South Korea was considering commercial whaling. Well, the Australians helped nip that one in the bud. Regardless to say, I was interviewed on Australian radio, broadcast in Australia, Indonesia and parts of Malaysia. It seems they thought I was some sort of “expert on the subject”, no doubt due to an article that I wrote for Earth Island Institute.
