The Eagle: A Times Union Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and other popular podcast apps.

When Albany activist Kat Sullivan heard a satirical sea shanty about the ship that recently clogged the Suez Canal, she was inspired to try her hand at the trending musical genre.

On a rainy Sunday morning, she set to work composing and filming her own shanty detailing the fallout from a whistleblower's complaint of potential safety hazards in the construction of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, as first reported by the Times Union.

On this episode of The Eagle: A Times Union Podcast, Times Union Editor Casey Seiler speaks with Sullivan to find out more about how the shanty came together.

Also on this episode, education reporter Rachel Silberstein talks to Onovu Otitigbe-Dangerfield, the first Black valedictorian in Albany High School's 152-year history, and arts and entertainment reporter Shrishti Mathew gets a sneak peek at local comedienne Erin Harkes' new stand-up album, "Zoloft and Probation."*
