Welcome to The Waterpeople Podcast, a gathering for our global ocean community to dive into the critical conversations of our culture -- through storytelling. Listen with Lauren L. Hill and Dave Rastovich as they begin each episode with a simple question: “Tell us about a time or experience after which you were never the same…” Sit with some of the most adept waterpeople on the planet to explore common themes of aquatic lives lived well: ecology, adventure, community, activism, science, egalitarianism, inclusivity, meaningful play. And, surfing, of course.
