Meet Paul Linnman, the reporter who covered the infamous exploding whale

Paul Linnman, Exploding WhaleSome think that only certain stories define a reporter's career and nothing could be further from the truth. Just ask TV reporter Paul Linnman who since the dawn of the Internet has been dubbed as the "exploding whale guy."

He's covered all sorts of amazing stories, people and moments around the world, but his most famous story is one of a beached whale that Oregon Department of Transportation officials tried to blow up with a ton of dynamite.

Still, Linnman was nice enough to sit down with me and discuss that infamous day in TV history when the blubber hit the fan (as well as the cameras, a flattened car and about 75 onlookers) for an interview at Asylum.com.
