Great show, please keep it coming.
I thought it is important to say that I'm pretty sure that there are many loyal listeners like me who can not wait to down load your latest pod cast weekly who are not able to participate live weekly.
Thanks and keep it coming.
Great show, I went back and downloaded all of the episodes. I thoroughly enjoy the tips on equipment as well as the travel. It's nice to think that there are divers out there that love our sport as much as the rest of us do. Keep ou the good work; I look forward to many more podcasts.
