    Ocean-Friendly Disinfectant for Dive Gear. We don’t normally promote products, but with anxiety surrounding the cleanliness of dive kit and Covid-19, we’d like to point out that Fourth Element, in co-operation with The Diver Medic, has introduced a disinfectant called GoodToDive that uses powerful oxidizing agents, but leaves a solution that can be safely discarded without damaging the aquatic environment. Effective in both fresh and seawater, it’s available in powder form and can be used safely to disinfect masks, regulators, and BCs. Don’t inject it! www.goodtodive.com

Well-Informed, Great Conversations!

The news segment they usually begin the show with is always interesting! Casual conversation and well-informed, experienced hosts makes for a great show!

This podcast is GREAT!

I’m new to diving and enjoy hearing about so many things.
I love hearing Darrin butcher words while reading an article, too!

Best scuba podcast

I’ve recently got back in to diving after life happens. I’ve found this pod cast and love it. It’s the best out there and as I also live in Michigan I understand the long winters of not diving and longing for summer. These guys are the best, kinda want to have a beer or...3 with them. Keep up the good work as some people are just discovering Scuba obsessed!
