This is a great podcast!

I really enjoy listening and learning from this podcast. The interviews are deep dives into subjects that are important for all ocean lovers but easily understandable. Keep up the great work!

Amazing!

I love this podcast so much! It’s very informative, interesting, and makes me want to become a marine biologist even more. It was hard for me to find a good information source on how to become a marine biologist, conservation information, and updates in our ocean, but this gives me the whole picture! I get inspired every time I listen to this podcast and can’t wait for the next episode!

Love it!

I just binged all 31 currently available episodes and can’t talk enough about how much I enjoyed it. I love the positivity about maybe feeling unsure sometimes but this path just finds you, and the great stories and experiences all guests have shared! From this, I’ve found new people to follow who do work in areas I’m really interested in. I’m NOT a marine biologist (god I wish), but getting scuba certified made me wish I had known how invested I’d become in the ocean when I was still in school so I could reroute my path

I’ve mostly been putting it on while at work, but now that I’ve caught up, I’ll check out the website when I get a chance!
