Jayne Jenkins - Surface Interval

Jayne Jenkins - Surface Interval

We've managed to coax Don Silcock back into the studio by waving a beer under his nose, and as a bonus his dive buddy of 20 years came along too... The legendary, Jayne Jenkins.

During this episode, we explore a number of topics, including Jayne's diving, international travel lounges that I didn't even know existed, Don's movements and writings, beer, wide-angle camera equipment preferences and diver training.  A little teaser of what may be occurring with the expansion of Scuba GOAT and the upcoming relaunch of Nomadic Scuba, all served up with a large dollop of hilarity, giggles and maybe the odd cuss word (you've been warned).
