Watch Aron and Jill in lockdown as they delve deeper into decompression sickness and diving. Jill’s unexpected hit came after thousands of amassed hours exploring in extreme conditions. DCS, or the bends, is a sports injury and there is a spectrum of how the gas bubbles can affect your body from a skin rash to paralysis.

Catch Matt and Aron live at 8 pm UK, Monday 20th April 2020 on The DDE’s Facebook page.

DDE has 10-plus more episodes in the making so keep an eye on their social media for announcement of the next guests.  The broadcasts will be available to watch on the DDE website and YouTube channel afterwards.

According to Aron Arngrímsson:

“We all realize the lockdown is not fun, and there are plenty of other things we would rather be doing, namely being underwater but we are in this together to fight COVID-19. So, when thinking about how DDE could deliver you the next best thing to actually going diving; we thought why not bring the finest Explorers to your living room twice a week. Coming Clean has turned into a fantastic community project with a brilliant production team behind the scenes, exciting content creation and I get to live out my secret dream pretending to be a late-night talk show host. It’s set to be an unmissable series, tune in.”

Tune in to Facebook on Thursday at 8:00 pm London / 3:00 pm US Eastern to watch
