Now in its fourth year of operation, InDEPTH, the only magazine today dedicated to technical and mission-oriented diving, has doubled its staff in its efforts to deepen and extend its coverage and content of the underwater world.
Hosted by the impassioned divers at Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) as an offering to the global tech community, the goal of the spirited publication is simple – benevolent world domination!
“We want to be the #1 must-read, global publication for tech, cave, breath-hold and other mission-oriented divers,” said co-founder and editor-in-chief Michael Menduno, who founded and produced the now defunct aquaCORPS Journal (1990-1996), which helped usher technical diving into the mainstream.
Each issue of InDEPTH takes a deep dive into topics like exploration, diving safety and human factors, diving physiology, technology and equipment, training, community, conservation, art and culture and diving history. And it’s sponsored by some of the best brands on the water planet!
According to Menduno, aka M2, this Mix First media outlet has added four professionals to its team to help produce InDEPTH each month, an act which he describes as a labour of love and/or narcosis. New to the InDEPTH team are:
• Ashley Stewart, a Seattle-based business and technology journalist, who is InDepth’s new Managing Editor
• Rico Besserdich, an artist, author, award-winning photographer, and former CMAS course director, who is Production Director
• SJ Alice Bennett, a graphic artist, designer and award-winning underground photojournalist, who is Art Director
• Darcy Kieran, principle of the Business Diving Institute, is InDEPTH’s Survey-Meister.
Pat Jablonski, former writing instructor/ tutor, writer and copy editor will remain as Manager of Copy Editing, as will copy editors Nic Haylett and Katy Taber-Olensky, and production assistant Kenzie Potter. Their bios and contact info can be found here: About Us.
InDEPTH posts the first Thursday of every month. Subscriptions to the geeky tech tome are FREE!
“We want to be the go-to source for the people who can’t get enough of this stuff – the water tribe people,” Menduno said. “I like to think of it as aquaCORPS for the 21st century.”
