The Marine Conservation Happy Hour is a podcast that looks at the many different sides of Marine Science and Conservation in an informal setting - a during a pub Happy Hour, chatting casually over a few (or more) drinks. The show is co-hosted by Andrew Lewin, @Craken_McCraic, @DrScarlettSmash and @MarineBrit. Everyone is a marine scientist who is passionate about the Ocean, marine mammals (whales, seals, dolphins, porpoises, polar bears and more), sharks and other fish, invertebrates (especially squid & octopuses because they are cool), and other marine biology things that live under the sea. Join us as we gossip about, for example, how shows like Game of Thrones are similar to Marine Conservation, the sex lives of sea creatures, hot marine science & conservation topics of the week and learn about the challenges of attaining a marine biology or conservation career.

Good topics, poor audio

The background track you use is too loud and it sometimes drowns out the speakers, especially Andrew who sometimes mumbles or trails away...otherwise I really enjoy the topics you discuss and the different perspectives. Would like more guest speakers!

Mixed bag

Overall, this is a decent podcast. Unfortunately there is political bias and animal rights extremist messaging, whether blatant or undertones, in many episodes. I would love to hear more balanced discussions in episodes that brashly trash the work of zoos and aquariums. And just so the “scientists” on the show are aware- the Baltimore Aquarium’s proposed seaside sanctuary is no different than the other coastal sea pen style aquariums in the Florida Keys and Caribbean islands. Also, the Epcot Living Seas does have docents, biologists and trainers that interact with guests throughout the day. Just because the small sample size of your time there didn’t include that doesn’t mean it can be excluded in a message to the public as being part of the programming. That’s just bad science- making an assumption to push an extremist agenda. It’s a pity, because I do enjoy much of the content on the podcast- I just can’t recommend it when they’re spreading misinformation to the general public. Thank you for the episodes on biodiversity, climate change, etc.

YAS!

Very entertaining and fun. I am not a scientist but I love the environment and I want to know what is going on, what I can do to help, and Andrew, Smash and Cracken bring so much information to the table. Keep it up guys!
