Where Have All the Fish Gone?

Fans of science and radio rejoice: The Field Trip is a new podcast series dedicated to bringing you your science fix in smart and entertaining little audio packages, each one the perfect length for a commute, treadmill session, or getting-ready-for-work time. 

The Field Trip crew has graciously allowed us to share their second episode with Mother Jones readers. The topic: fish. “To discover why so many of them seem to be disappearing from the world’s seas,” writes the crew, “we talk with Captain Mike Hudson, a commercial salmon fisherman, and Dr. Luiz Rocha at the California Academy of Sciences.” Have a listen. (And once you’re done with that, listen to the first episode here. The topic of that one is Mars, and you won’t want to miss the explanation of why showering in space is really very dangerous.)

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
