If you’re a podcast junkie and need a new one to add to your rotation, check out The League Of Extraordinary Divers podcast created and hosted by ScubaGuru.com‘s Tec Clark.

Bob Croft, the father of American freediving, was the podcast’s inaugural guest, where he spoke about the early days of freediving and a whole lot more.

The podcast series features legends in the diving industry telling some of their most memorable diving experiences, many of which most people have never heard.

Clark says of the series:

“The podcast was inspired during a freediving competition in Hawaii where I had the fortune of having diving legend Bob Croft as my roommate. Each night of the competition Bob and I would sit back with a scotch or two and he would tell me stories . . . wonderful, enlightening and entertaining stories. I realized how privileged I was to get these stories first-hand from the legend himself. From that time I was inspired to create a podcast that shares stories of diving legends for all diving enthusiasts to enjoy.”

In addition to Croft, Florida Keys diving icon Spencer Slate and underwater filmmaker and author Stan Waterman round out the first three podcasts, which are sponsored by the Aggressor Fleet liveaboard company.
