Greetings from Ft. Lauderdale! Welcome back to a special bonus episode of 59º North, the podcast about sailing. I’m recording this from legendary sailor and podcast guest Pam Wall’s kitchen table! Pam helped Mia and I find a slip for Isbjorn here in busy - and expensive - south Florida. The boat is docked in a canal across the street from Pam’s house for the next month, and she’s been kind enough to let me use her kitchen as my temporary office. Sweet!
Episode 146 is actually Episode #1 of the new ‘Ocean Sailing Podcast,’ produced by longtime fan of 59º North, David Hows and released on April 1. David and I have been communicating for some time now about his new show - which comes to us from Down Under in Australia - and I’ve been excited to help him launch it. He’s been inspired to start his own podcast for a while now, and has put in a ton of effort to make it happen.
David already has three episodes released, and will continue on a bi-weekly basis. Search for ‘Ocean Sailing Podcast’ on iTunes to subscribe for free, and read more about David and the show on oceansailingpodcast.com.
With that, I’ll let David tell the rest of the story in his short intro to episode one, which is a long conversation he had with Australian yachting writer and legend Rob Mundle. David will be joining me soon as a guest on 59º North, so look for that. Enjoy episode 1 of the Ocean Sailing Podcast, with host David Hows!
