Beasts of Seattle: Salmon
Host Samantha Allen with guests Chef Shota Nakajima and Joe Seymour

From Pike Place Market to the Ballard Locks, Salmon are stalwart icons of Seattle. But as they face warming waters and stormwater runoff, their future is threatened and uncertain. As part of the Beasts of Seattle Series, Town Hall’s Podcast Artist-in-Residence Samantha Allen interviews artist and American Indian Studies instructor Joe Seymour, Pike Place Fish Market co-owner Jaison Scott, Chef Shota Nakajima of Taku, and salmon stewards Jeff and Allison Lilly.

Samantha Allen is the author of Patricia Wants to Cuddle and the Lambda Literary Award finalist, Real Queer America: LGBT Stories from Red States. A GLAAD Award-winning journalist, Samantha’s writing has been published by The New York Times, Rolling Stone, CNN, and more.


Presented by Town Hall Seattle. Beasts of Seattle is part of Town Hall’s Artist-in-Residence program.
