Awesome SCUBA Podcast
I am always searching on the internet for SCUBA information and shows. Many of the shows are cancelled and not current.
Rich is here every week without fail. many times divers become disconnected with their local shop and dive biddies.
Rich helps many bridge the gap and stay interested and in touch with diving. Rich gives great commentary about his dives, gear and instruction.
I look forward to listening every week to get my SCUBA fix. Joining in on the live chat and show is a great bonus as well!
Download past episodes and listen in. You won't be disappointede
By Scuba Jim. This is by far one of the best podcast out there for not only new divers but divers of all levels of experience. Rich takes the time to give you all that he knows about equipment, diving skills, and training. He bends over backwards to try and make sure you have the opportunity to get everything you want out of this wonderful sport. Recently I went back to a podcast from season 1 episode 25 in which he talks about supporting your LDS. Now I understand. Thanks Rich
Best Dive Podcast on Itunes
