    Wait...WHAT?? TEN EPISODES of East Coast wreck diving... heroic deeds....noble virtues and grand character... all shot to hell? Surely our sacred realm of Scuba diving is a bastion of relief from the world's ugliness of greed and want of fame? Perhaps not! Have a listen as we examine yet another book detailing the East Coast wreck diving community and in particular the search for the identity of the U-Who (aka the U-869), listen to what deep shipwreck diving legend Gary Gentile has to say about "Shadow Divers" as we dive into his book, "Shadow Divers Exposed. The Real Saga of The U-869".

Funny podcast for all

I enjoy listening to these two talk about how other people being stupid. As a barista I experience those people who think going into a shipwreck with no training for “just a peak” is a good idea. I also love having all this information about diving, even though I have yet to dive ever. But I hope too. Cheers to you guys!

Great dive podcast or greatest dive podcast?

James and Brando know diving. As a lover of all things diving, I love this show. Its a mix of dive history, dive theory, dive talk, and dive fun all rolled into one. The most fun you can have while dry.
