James Prosek: "Fishing With Mystery"

September 6, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

These days James Prosek, this month’s featured artist on MidCurrent, is known as a painter, author and, with the ESPN production of “The Compleat Angler” (see the videos), filmmaker.
Now Prosek’s also a public radio podcaster. American Public media just posted Prosek’s 53-minute commentary on the mystical nature of trout and other fish as part of their “Speaking of Faith Series.”
Excerpt: “Nature really is chaotic.The real myth is the one that the Natural History Museum promotes in its collections and in its family trees and genealogies. The real myth is the myth of order.”
