Fish Nerds with Clay Groves
Fish Nerds is a celebration of fish, fishing and eating fish with your host Clay Groves. The goal of the show is to explore all aspects of fish; highlighting the amazing, inspiring, unusual and funny.
Clay Groves is obsessed with fish and best known for a quest in 2011 to catch and eat every kind of freshwater fish in New Hampshire. After catching and eating 48 species of fish and ending the epic quest, he could not stop talking about the adventures or the fishy people met along the way. Thus, the podcast was born. The style has been described as a cross between NPR’s Car Talk and the Tonight Show.
