    Dr Jason Zuidema, Executive Director, North American Maritime Ministry Association

    We continue the discussion about; what is a fair future for seafarers? Dr Jason Zuidema, Executive Director, North American Maritime Ministry Association, NAMMA, share his view on what we need to do to make seafarers keyworkers. He says it's about respect and using the instruments already in place. Abandonment in 2021 is a disgrace. Also, seafarers must be able to trust that they get paid.
    Jason thinks seafaring it's an honourable profession. Seafarers are very proud to be seafarers; it's the uncertainty that is wearing down. It's not the hard work or the hardship that comes with leaving loved ones; it's the uncertainty of now knowing when you come back the next time or if you get paid.
    In the end, Jason does a call for support of seafarers; everyone can do something to show kindness to international seafarers. Make sure you listen to the end.
    What is your view on what Jason says, I'd love to hear from you.
    Thanks for listening.

    Captain Kate McCue and Captain Thomas Lindegaard Madsen

    Listen to the two most famous Master Mariners globally, Captain Kate McCue and Captain Thomas Lindegaard Madsen, in their first encounter ever. The conversation touches upon so many exciting things as cats, shoes, leadership, containers, high-heals, role models, visibility, respect, accountability, dreams, career choices and the fact that #SeafarersAreKeyWorkers and why that should be part of the job description when you sign up to become a seafarer. 
    I am so grateful to the Captains for making this possible. I am also thankful for my audience, who sent in so many good questions for the Captains. You helped me focus on the interview when I was so starstruck.

Super informative!

It is always great to get an insight on how an industry works and learn about the people in it. The shipping podcast has various professionals from the shipping industry in Sweden as guests, who provide valuable information and their views on various subjects. The discussions are of great quality and analyse each subject in sufficient depth and detail.
Highly recommended to anyone interested in shipping!
