Dr. Sylvia Earle has been one of my heroes since I saw the 2014 documentary “Mission Blue” about her tireless work on behalf of the oceans that sustain us. I had the privilege of interviewing her for my Saturday Evening Post story, “Oceans on the Edge” – we spoke for nearly three hours and I had far more material than I could fit in the Post story. So I sent the transcript to The Sun, one of the few print magazines that publishes long-form interviews. I’d interviewed Studs Terkel and Barry Lopez for The Sun years ago and I’m thrilled to be back in their pages.
