Why some find oysters 'icky' and how to turn that feeling to 'yummy'

This is the Radio Boston rundown for Jan. 18. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Everyone has at least one food that's just a no-go, whether it's texture, smell, or just the idea of it. We kick off a new series turning "ick" foods into "yummy" starting with the oft-reviled oyster.
  • Massachusetts has some unique maritime traditions. From Gloucester's Greased Pole to Provincetown's Blessing of the Fleet, to Boston, where every once in a long while a fish makes its way from The Old State House to the New State House. We speak with WBUR's Steve Brown about the history of the Sacred Cod.
  • Our series, "Comics Culture," dives into the world of comics and the culture around them. Our regular guest, Joel Christian Gill, chair of Boston University's MFA program in Visual Narrative, joins us to discuss his upcoming exhibition, "Comics is a Medium, Not a Genre."

This program aired on January 18, 2023.
