Learn How to Speak Wicked Tuna
An Interactive Audio Glossary With First-Mate Paulie
We’re all familiar with basic Bostonese—you know, “wicked ah-some” or "I'm pah-kin' the cah"—but for the fishermen of Wicked Tuna, they’ve developed a vernacular all their own. From "squeaker" (pronounced: "squeakah") to "googans" (pronounced with disdain), we figured you might need a glossary to get you through this show. So we recruited Tuna.com's First Mate Paul Hebert to help you learn the salty talk of a real New England fisherman.
