Seaspiracy (Netflix Original)

You may not eat fish again if you watch this passionate Netflix documentary, Seaspiracy, about global corruption, from destroying marine life with plastic garbage to slaughtering whales and dolphins using slave labor.

John and Gunter have fun bringing this little-known Netflix docudrama to the NPR audience.
