One of the rants we’ve had a few times here on Rant n Rave Radio is about whaling and countries that keep whaling.
We’ve exposed the lies behind “scientific” whaling and the other weak excuses used to continue this barbaric practice. And, if you’ve caught those particular rants, you’ll know that Greg and Alex are big fans of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s work during the southern hemisphere whalers’ hunt.
So when we heard the Sea Shepherd’s “Steve Irwin” whale hunter vessel was to port in Australia we thought we’d contact them for a gig on the show.
At first we thought we’d get told to bugger off since we’re a small (very small) operation, if you can call it that. But Greg never gave in and set about finding out what was going and who we had to speak to to get an interview. We explained how the show works and that there’s essentially no censorship; we’d give them the air time to vent their grievances about the ongoing whale slaughter however they wanted to express them. Apparently they thought this was an awesome idea.
Now we’re following up with them to find the exact person, the one with that’s in-the-know, and give them time to vent their spleens about whaling. We’ll keep everyone up-to-date with how we’re going securing an interview.
