Virtual Online Podcasts

As our podcasts are very popular, we decided to expand our horizons by doing online podcasts with a large variety of guests. We film our traditional podcasts  in our studio here in Bali with special guests who are passing through Indonesia. However, with the 2020 shutdown, we are branching out and creating Virtual Online Podcasts instead. What is a virtual online podcast? It’s simple, instead of hosting our guests in studio, we are recording our interviews with them online instead.  Using tools such as Zoom, we are interviewing people from a wide range of ocean professionals. Marine scientists, conservationists, photographers, and industry legends are all joining us on the Underwater Tribe Online Podcasts.

We are producing these Podcast three times per week at present, although they may change. Each episode averages around one hour in length. The archives are available on Facebook, YouTube, Soundcloud, and Apple Podcasts. The Facebook and YouTube versions are videos with wonderful photos and films to help illustrate the stories. The Soundcloud and Apple versions are Audio Only and are the perfect accompaniment for car rides and walking the dog. Recent guests include Douglas Seifert, Simon Buxton, William Tan, Jason Isley, and Howard and Michele Hall. We discuss a wide range of topics with all of our guests for a truly fascinating discussion every episode.

Our classic Podcasts are still available on all of these platforms, you can see the line up on our Podcast Page.
