In January 2014 I did a show about Blackfish, the eye-opening documentary that uncovered and exposed SeaWorld for decades of animal abuse, neglect and kidnapping baby orca whales from their beloved families in the world's oceans. This was a very powerful 'first show of the year' that touched so many of you.
Since it's release and continued airings on CNN, Blackfish has been causing major waves at SeaWorld, including rapid declines in attendance and ticket sales and collective debates as to whether or not orca's belong in captivity. Millions of people from around the world have got onboard The Blackfish Effect, and continue to spread the world about the documentary in hopes of one day shutting down SeaWorld and releasing the orca's back into their natural environment.
Former SeaWorld trainer Samantha Berg (who was featured in the Blackfish movie) talks with us about her thoughts on Blackfish, SeaWorld and what will likely be the future for the beloved Tilikum. Samantha was most generous with her time and spent nearly 20 minutes with us when we were only scheduled for 3-5 minutes! Thanks again Samantha! For a remainder of the show, we'll opened up the phone lines to hear from you, and your thoughts about Blackfish & SeaWorld. Oh yes, and my Mother makes an appearance....

They are an animal that possesses great spiritual power not to be messed with
All whales in captivity experience psychological trauma: It's not just Tilikum
These are animals that have highly elaborated emotional lives
There's no record of an Orca doing any harm in the wild!
In 1970 Divers used speedboats, bombs, & planes to heard & corral Orcas to abduct their young. The adults refused to leave while their young were being taken and 3 died in the nets, which they cut open, filled with stones, & anchored their tails to sink them. In 1976 Washington State evicted them forever from our waters. They abducted Tilikum from Iceland when he was only 2 years old. In 1991 he pulled a trainer to her death. It was buried in the news merely as a drowning and the park closed selling Tilikum to SeaWorld for breeding. More deaths have been attributed to Tilikum, who is now ketp locked up in a pen most of his day. Do you think it would be okay to be ripped from your family as a child and imprisoned for life?
This movie is worth watching to update your thinking about live animal theme parks.
When Young Orcas are ripped from their moms and pods the wailing and crying continues hopelessly lound and unceasing. Seaworld even did this with their captivity born Orcas further traumatizing the animals they were charged with better custodial care. It is a sham, a lie.
It is inhumane and Shameful. How is this different than Slavery in America? The Assimilation movement of boarding schools for Native American children, also ripped from their families? Yes they aren animals and it still unethical.
The Rated R Republican and the Mandated Reporter look at Blackfish and other documentary's/propaganda films. We'll talk a little WWE Royal Rumble and laud the dude who put up an ad requesting someone bring him to Taco Bell!
Listen as Christopher discusses the documentary BLACKFISH, which follows the journey of the orca known as TILIKUM, who was painfully kidnapped from his loving family in the sea at two years of age. BLACKFISH follows Tilikum's journey, and exposes SeaWorld for numerous counts of animal cruelty.
This is PART ONE of a series of shows Christopher will be doing about BLACKFISH.

"Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s documentary Blackfish is a clear successor to 2009’s The Cove." - The New Statesman.
“Blackfish is a highly compelling film that’s already being touted as a likely Oscar contender." - Salon.com.
Few documentaries in the past few years have resonated with movie audiences as much as Blackfish has, and with good reason. I know of few families who haven't been to SeaWorld at least once during the kids' childhoods, including my own. And why not? There's something majestic and powerful about seeing a killer whale -- their sleek, polished beauty, their massive size leaping gracefully out of sparkling water, their sharp intelligence. Backdrop that with their cheerful, diminutive trainers trainers and all those "tricks" they perform just for us, the eager participants in this dramatic show of nature's power -- it's hard to beat that as compelling entertainment.
And then you see a film like Blackfish. It's hard to imagine why we ever thought that that could be anything but exploitation and abuse of nature's most awesome creatures.
Join us on Friday at 2:00 pm Central/3:00 pm Eastern for a very special LIVE interview with Blackfish filmmaker Gabriela Cowperthwaite. Ask questions through the chat room, or just call in at 626-226-1446.
Alex Louise Dorer of Fins and Fluke and Mini Krishnan of Orca United will join me to talk about the upcoming Marineland Protest: Free Kiska on Saturday, May 31 at 11:00am at MarineLand Canada 7657 Portage Road, Niagara Falls, Ontario L2E 6X8.
Since the release of the documentary "Blackfish", there has been a huge momentum to help liberate captive orcas across the world from inadequate living conditions at marine parks. Kiska is the last captive orca in Canada, and has been named as the saddest and loneliest in the world. This event will highlight the issues of marine mammal captivity and will focus on calling for Kiska's release to a seapen or more suitable home with other orcas. It will be to draw in more support in closing down Marineland, and will follow a protest on May 17 to help to continue the pressure on the park. All are welcome to join!
