We’re slowly approaching a new dive season, folks! Time to break out your gear (if you haven’t been diving over the winter) and check everything out. After a long and intermittent hiatus due to hardware, software and service provider problems, we’re coming back with new episodes of This Guy Who Dives. Catch previous episodes at www.youtube.com/user/cetifoxproductions and episodes older than 73 at www.youtube.com/user/scubadog2008 .
The Two Guys Who Dive netcast began in January of 2012 as a bit of an experiment. The two most prolific divers in the area, ScubaDog and Scuba Bob, had toyed around with ideas to increase awareness of the sport that would also be fun. When they finally settled on the idea of a live streaming netcast it sparked a considerable amount of work. What was already being used as a home music studio was renovated and updated with some new equipment that could support video podcasts. It’s been a learning experience for both, in terms of format and in terms of technology, and you can see the gradual progress made over the first year if you view the netcasts on YouTube.
Almost four years later, the show is still going, albeit with a name change to This Guy Who Dives (do to Scuba Bob bowing out for other challenges). This show is not just about scuba diving, but includes topics of local, regional and national interest, frequently involving technology and some politics (particularly if it affects the dive industry), reviews of movies, restaurants and much more. Viewers are invited to participate in the chat room while the show is live and encouraged to subscribe to the YouTube channel to catch the shows afterward.
You can see Two Guys Who Dive on its new night — Sundays at 8pm Central — and at its new location (Facebook Live) at https://www.facebook.com/DelRioDiveClub/.
