Welcome to WHALE, WHALE, WHALE: a guided read-through of the Herman Melville classic, Moby-Dick. If you're a fan of Moby-Dick looking for a new twist on the book, you've never read the book, you've tried to read the book and then given up, or if you've ever lied and said you read the book, this is the show for you. Hosted by Kevin Flynn.
