Scuba Radio interview online

The podcast of my Scuba Radio interview is now online – good fun. I joined the program for a bit at about the 32-minute mark. . . And many thanks to host Greg the Divemaster for including my book among the items he recommended for anyone who wants to give the gift of scuba. For a slightly longer form interview – complete with an audio cameo by astronaut-turned-aquanaut Scott Carpenter – check out this program from a few months ago on Southern California Public Radio.

SEALAB, science and diving

The Man-in-the-Sea Museum in Panama City Beach, Florida, has started up a new newsletter to boost its outreach efforts and signal a new chapter in museum operations. I was asked to contribute a piece about SEALAB, science and diving, which just came out in the November newsletter – fitting timing as the museum gears up to raise money to restore and properly display SEALAB I. The original habitat’s hull has been sitting for years in the museum parking lot and the hope is to turn it into a bona fide exhibit.

‘Sea Base Alpha’ online

My story in Discover magazine, “Sea Base Alpha,” is now online, I see – at least the first few paragraphs. The full text (about 4,600 well-chosen words in all) is available to subscribers only, alas. But I saw the June issue was still on newsstands the other day, so it may not be too late to grab this issue in print, still one of my favorite formats. Or you could consider subscribing to a great magazine. So many choices. . .
