In September Podcast, King Discusses Economic Importance of Lobster

BRUNSWICK, ME – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) today released the September edition of his podcast, Inside Maine. In the September edition, Senator King interviews Matt Jacobson, Executive Director of the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative, and Genevieve McDonald, a lobsterman from Stonington. Senator King and his guests discuss the importance of the lobster to Maine, including its impact on jobs and tourism, areas of potential growth, future challenges and the hope for a lobster emoji.

"Anyone from Maine will tell you that lobster’s more than just a delicious meal: it’s a serious business,” Senator King said. “With more than 3,000 lobstermen, hundreds of processing facilities and countless lobster shacks to greet tourists looking for a dinner fresh from the trap, the lobster is a major economic engine for our coastal communities that deserves recognition.”

The “Inside Maine Podcast with Senator Angus King” is a 30-minute program that aims to help keep Maine people informed about issues of the day, how they affect life in the state, and how they factor into Senator King’s work as one of two independents in the U.S. Senate. Senator King’s podcast builds on his existing radio show that airs on Newsradio WGAN in Portland, Maine between 10 and 11 a.m. on almost every last Saturday of the month.
