When John Aldridge fell off his commercial fishing boat 40 miles
from the eastern tip of Long Island, he didn't expect to make it out of the water. Now, he and his fishing partner Anthony Sosinki are proud to call themselves Montauk's only fishermen with a book and a movie deal.

Fordham Conversations host Andrew Seger talks with both John and
Anthony about their experience while, on the ship "Anna Mary."

We also hear from Commander Jonathan Theel of the US Coast Guard. He was the Chief of Response at the Long Island Sound Sector at the time John went missing, and headed the rescue mission.
