Episode 2 – History and Shipwrecks of Guernsey with J P Fallaize

The second Dive Guernsey podcast, recorded Weds 15th November in the Dive Bunker.

J P Fallaize is a keen local diver, with an interest in local history, with a particular focus on shipwrecks.

In this episode, we talk about the shipwrecks of Guernsey and the surrounding area. With a particular focus on the work involved with researching, finding and classifying the wrecks.

We then go on to talk generally about the diving that we do and the people that we do it with.

This is only my second podcast, so i’m very much in the early stages of learning. About 16 minutes in, i was worried about making the full 45 – next thing i knew, it was nearly midnight, and we had recorded three and a half hours! So if it’s a bit slow in the beginning, please bare with it.

For more information on the wrecks and history discussed, check out JP’s facebook page Bailiwick of Guernsey Shipwrecks

Episode 1 (pilot) – Talking Local & Holiday Diving with Olly and Ryan

 

 

The first ever Dive Guernsey Podcast. Recorded at Olly’s house, in front of a open fire (sorry for the  crackling) on a hungover Sunday over a couple of wines and ciders. We aimed for 45 mins, but had to stop after 3 hours!

We talk generally about diving in the Channel Islands over the years, with a focus on scalloping. We also briefly and somewhat erratically discuss some of our favourite and  not-so-favourite holiday destinations.

Clearly a factual program, you’ll learn such things as:

  • What constitutes “Dog-Shit” diving
  • How not to react to an unruly child on a flight
  • What fun it is to watch Irish people being sick on a dive-boat
  • Why you might need a shitty stick and a second tank on a diving course
