Captain Fred and Lil’ Toot featured on NPR’s ‘Ask Me Another’

From NPR –
“For Santa Barbara residents, Lil’ Toot is simply a water taxi. But to the Ask Me Another staff, Lil’ Toot became something of an obsession. The captain of the boat, Fred Hershman described it as a “cute, lil’ yellow tug boat that goes back and forth across the harbor.” While the ride only lasts 12 to 15 minutes, the boat is equipped with a cute little horn, and bubbles coming out of the smokestack.

Host Ophira Eisenberg quizzes noted cruise-haver Jonathan Coulton on his nautical knowledge with a lil’ help from Captain Fred.”
