The Seas of our Loss

Leah Abramson is a Vancouver-based musician who immersed herself in the world of Northern Resident Orca whales to write her recent album, and masters’ thesis, Songs for a Lost Pod. We speak with Leah about the musical inspiration in obscure research projects, about the lessons of forgiveness in unexpected places, and about the ways a family history of trauma can connect us to the animals with whom we share the seas.

Spoken word included in the episode is by Barbara Adler.
