Raising the USS Monitor with Navy Diver Bobbie Scholley, and New Freediving Records Under COVID-19

In Episode 14, you’ll hear the latest news in the last week from around the world underwater including hearing about 4 new freediving world records set under the first competitions starting up post-summer COVID-19 lockdowns.

Then we have one of our co-hosts – the iconic US freediver and Discovery Channel host – Mehgan Heaney-Grier.  Mehgan debuts this week with an interview with Bobbie Scholley, a retired captain in the US Navy where she served for 24 years and specialized in special operations and surface warfare, as well as deep-sea salvage.  She takes us on a journey as she tells us about her career as well as helping salvage on one of the most iconic and historically significant shipwrecks in US naval history – the USS Monitor.

We then hear from Alex Rose, science editor and photographer at the incredible Oceangeographic Magazine as she helps us understand the best way to start capturing epic underwater shots… and it has nothing to do with equipment.

And then finally we hear from Polly Woolfenden on her Best Dive Ever.

Don’t forget to give us ★★★★★, leave a review, and tell your friends about us – every share and like really makes a difference!
