TV journalist Rob Caldwell came to Peaks Island to interview me about the story behind the stories of Go By Boat. I was particularly pleased that it was Rob; his first job in Maine was as a deck hand on the Casco Bay Lines ferry. Even before reading the book, he had a good understanding of what it must have been like practicing medicine on Peaks, Long, Chebeague, and Cliff Islands. The interview aired on channel 6 in May but apparently was so popular they decided to re-air it several days ago. At roughly 5 minutes it captures aspects of island medicine I’d nearly forgotten.
I hope you enjoy it. Dr. Chuck Radis
