Meat and Three
Out to Sea: Sailors, Shellfish and Seaweed
This week on Meat and Three we’re diving beneath the waves for an episode all about oceans. We visit underwater farms to learn about the current oyster boom and the benefits of growing kelp. Then, we climb on deck to understand how lobsters and fishermen are being impacted by the changing climate and travel back in time aboard British naval ships to sip on a game-changing cocktail.

Research for the grog story came predominantly from a book by Tom Standange. To learn about grog and even more about beverage histories check out his book, “A History of the World in 6 Glasses”.
