Podcast: DEMA President Tom Ingram on why he has a tough time trusting Australians


Welcome to season 4 of the DeeperBlue Podcast! The latest episode of the DeeperBlue Podcast is now available.

Welcome back to Season 4 of the DeeperBlue Podcast!  We have a fantastic season lined up for you with some amazing guests.

In episode 1 you can look forward to:

  • The latest scuba diving, freediving, ocean, and diving travel news that has happened in the last week from around the world underwater with host Stephan Whelan and producer Jason Elias.
  • Then Jason speaks with DEMA President and CEO Tom Ingram.  DEMA is the global diving industry trade association and organizes the DEMA Show every year (and wrapped up last week).  Tom talked about his lifelong connection to the ocean, how this became his career, and a dive on the Great Barrier Reef that brought him face-to-face with a Great White Shark but not in the way you’d expect.
  • We then hear a top tip from National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen on why it pays to slow down
  • And then finally we hear another listener-submitted Best Dive Ever from Mike Marmesh about freediving in Dominica.
