On the March 31st Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with John Hargrove, a former Sea World trainer and author of “Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish.” In recent years, the theme park conglomerate has come under attack for mistreating Orcas, which Hargrove calls cruel for the animals and trainers. Where do you stand on this issue?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
