The brand-new DeeperBlue Podcast is your 30-minute weekly guide to everything happening around the world… underwater. Whether this is scuba diving, freediving, dive travel, or ocean advocacy.
Hosted by DeeperBlue.com founder Stephan Whelan and produced by Jason Elias of the Big Deep Podcast, the magazine-style podcast will cover all the latest underwater news, trends, equipment, and events happening all around the world.
Stephan highlighted the diverse set of stories guests will bring to the show: “We will talk to the most-interesting people in the dive world, from world-famous underwater pioneers to fearless modern explorers. We’ll discuss the latest in diving innovations from the people who created them… athletes pushing the limits of what we think humans can do underwater… and we’ll speak to people leading the efforts to preserve and protect the oceans we love.”
Jason added: “We will also cover all aspects of the traveling it takes to get to the dive spots we love, from undiscovered dive spot recommendations to epic exotic resorts and tropical islands in sun-washed waters.”
The first few episodes bring guests such as EMMY and BAFTA award-winning director Hugh Pearson, who has worked on The Blue Planet, Our Planet and The Hunt, RAID International President Paul Toomer, 18x world champion freediver William Trubridge, and extreme environment research scientist (and aquanaut) Dawn Kernagis, to name just a few of the amazing diving and ocean personalities that will be joining the show every week.
Stephan explained that in addition to amazing stories: “We will give you our honest opinions and intelligent, unvarnished commentaries on what we think is important in the dive world. You’ll quickly understand that we give you the best 30 minutes about getting underwater every single week.”
