Yes! The program's host sort of mumbled Joe's name.
He gave a very interesting and obviously well-informed description of whales: what they ingest and what they leave behind, including their bones. Thanks for clarifying.

John, is this the show description? Is there a possibility you heard Joe Roman,who was lead scholar on the 38th Voyage planning?
Just caught the tail end of a Science Friday segment on whales, and the guest--whose name I did not hear but I think he might be a "Jeff"—said he had been on the Morgan on the Stellwagen leg. Can anyone tell me who that was? (He had lots to say about whale poop, and other ecological contributions of whales.
Also: I've posted my P'town to Boston photos in a public album on Facebook. Some of you have seen them, but if you haven't and would like to the URL is
