I have just finished the entire TGDP catalog and figured I should update my review. So here goes: I don’t care if you are a SCUBA Diver or not if you aren’t listening to The Great Dive Podcast you’re dumb.

Surface interval fix

Funny and informative, Been binge listening to catch up starting at first episode in the fall, can’t imagine to soon have to wait a whole week between shows. Greetings from upstate NY, where I dive Lake George, which was exciting to hear mentioned in the episode about one of the guys that started PADI. Also if you like scuba article reviews from the 70s and 80s you’re going to love this show

Great guys, funny and informative. I’m a total newbie and learning a lot from these guys! Thanks!
