    Steve Lewis – Vice President of Marketing for RAID

    Steve Lewis – Vice President of Marketing for RAID

    Gemma and Ian chat to Steve Lewis.  Steve Lewis’s main aim in life was to dig fossils out of rocks and make historic finds as a paleontologist… or to win a Nobel Prize in the field of Physics and get well-paying tenure at MIT or CalTech. No surprises: he did neither. He is however an author, blogger, painter, cave diver, and a wanna-be cartoonist. When asked what he does for a living, he might admit to being Vice-President of Marketing for a diver certification agency, but more often he’ll tell people he tries to save people from drowning.

AlecFromGA ,

Great for everyone

I don’t dive, even though I would like to. I don’t have much time right now, but this podcast is an excellent way to learn about scuba diving in an entertaining way. You don’t have to be a diver to enjoy this podcast, and it is great. If you like hearing about the ocean, scuba diving, and encouraging stories then you should try listening to this!
