    Scuba Diving, Freediving, Dive Travel, and Ocean Advocacy: the DeeperBlue Podcast is your weekly guide to everything happening around the world… underwater.

    Over the last few months, as we have worked on Season Three, we have interviewed even more of the most dynamic, interesting, and influential people in the in dive, freedive, dive travel, and ocean advocacy world including “the Dive Nanny”, pioneering conservationists, legendary freedivers and a few epic surprises up our sleeves.
    And we can’t wait to share their stories.
    We’ve also retooled the show format and you will be hearing a lot more from our outstanding co-hosts.  Additionally, we have received a whole new batch of incredible Best Dive Evers from you, our listeners, and those are quickly becoming one of our favorite parts of the show.
    Interestingly, we also had an active awards season, with a shortlist as Best Sports Podcast from the Podcast Publishers Awards, and perhaps more incredibly we were Honored in the Webby’s as one of the best sports podcasts in the world. The Webbys are the most prestigious online awards, and are often called the Oscars of the Internet, so we could not be more thrilled.
    And we bring that excitement and energy into season three, which all starts again on Tuesday, July 13th.
    So please, join us as we continue our exploration of the world’s ocean community through the voices of the people who shape it.
