Round Table Discussion with Shrek, Bret Whitman and Jon Stenstrom Today's episode is likely to ruffle some feathers! Join Shrek as he has a really in depth discussion with Bret Whitman of the as well as Jon Stenstrom of the about all things "Seaspiracy"! The good, the bad and everything in between. If you haven't seen it yet, Seaspiracy is a film by Ali Tabrizi that shows the environmental impact of the fishing industry, highlighting the problem of overfishing and plastic waste in our oceans. The film definitely brings up good points and highlights some really serious issues but also falls short on several different topics. Shrek, Bret and Jon go through the film and apply a spearo's eye to it to see if ultimately we should all stop eating fish, as the film suggests. Give us your thoughts, whether you agree or disagree, let us know!

Interview with Bert Keulder - The Old Man Blue Today's interview is with Bert Keulder - the Old Man Blue, as you may know him. He's done everything you can think of in the water, including being tossed into the air by a Great White shark! A well traveled, highly experienced spearo that is deeply in love with the ocean, he has done it all and has an absolute wealth of knowledge from his years growing up near Cape Town, South Africa and living, working and spearfishing all around the world throughout his life. We chat about his early childhood days being dragged around the kelp forests in the Atlantic on an inflated car tube, his days in the military playing underwater hockey to when he worked as a diamond miner along the West Coast of Africa, to living and diving in Fiji with commercial fishermen until finally settling down in WA where he lives and dives today. He is an excellent resource and spearos of any experience level can learn a lot from him. He also makes exceptionally high quality dive gear that is designed to work well and not stop working for a long, long time.

Interview with Trevor Ketchion Spearfishing can be seen as a costly sport to get started in and with the huge range of gear for sale these days, it can so easily end up costing a lot more than it needs to.

How do I look after this gear I have invested in? Join Shrek, Trevor Ketchion and Captain Dan Walsh as they discuss being a Tightarse Spearo and give a run down and discussion on all the basic equipment that a new spearo would need as well as cost cutting and DIY tips, maintenance, what to look for when buying 2nd hand and ultimately where you can cut corners and not cut yourself short.

Interview with Addrianna Reitenbach This interview with Addrianna Reitenbach comes from a recommendation from Eric Anderson. “Hey Shrek! Wanted to connect you with Addrianna who is spearheading the up-and-coming dive community SoCal Dive Babes (IG: @socaldivebabes). This group is all about building a solid dive community and providing mentorship to women divers who want to get into spearfishing. We've been chatting a bit on spearing and watching their trips to Baja and local waters, fundraisers, beach events, underwater pumpkin target shooting, hanging out with Julie Riffe...I thought it would make a great interview. Always stoked to hear more stories in the spearing community and this sounds like a good one. You know I'm a fan of the Pcast, so keep it coming brotha!” - Eric Anderson Some of the highlights are; 'trash fish' chat, Southern California species and conditions, women in spearfishing, body language for hunting and more!

The Great Debate on Dock of Death/Death Pile Pictures Huge discussion on the phenomena on Social Media of pictures and videos with huge piles of dead fish. Often there are reasons for these piles of fish like providing for your family or community or it could be your source of income, or it might even be the result of a long day or weekend full of hard work spearing with your mates. Whatever the reason, often times on social media the context of a post can so easily be lost, so a proud picture of a long day of hard work trying to feed your family can turn into a what looks like a senseless killing spree. Other times these pictures are taken on purpose to show the sheer volume of fish that they caught. Is this right or wrong? Should pictures of Death Piles be posted? Yes? No? Why or why not? Bit of a different episode today but join us as we dive into this with Shrek and Simon Trippe as they chat about the so called Death Pile/Dock of Death Phenomenon. Full of interviews with spearos from around the world, this is definitely some food for thought, whichever side you're on!

Another Interview with Adam Stern YOUR BURNING FREEDIVING AND EQUALIZING QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY ADAM STERN This episode is a live call with Patron listeners and whole bunch of questions from the Noob Spearo Community on Facebook and @noobspearo on Instagram! In this episode we cover breath-hold and depth training questions, how to choose a freediving instructor, deep spearfishing (avoiding squeeze) questions, equalizing questions and more. Lot's of funny moments including Adam scalding his balls. Enjoy:) 5:00 Ben Vittino "I just want to know how he’s so happy and enthusiastic all the time. Love his energy!" Isaac “I have a question but first I need to know, Do you ever feel down? When you do, what do you do to get back Adam 187% Stern?" Dale Bartush "I'd also like to know what he thinks about in free fall. Not what he tells people to do lop but what he actually thinks and feels." 14:00 Scalded Ballsack Moment Listen in and subscribe on iOS or Android 16:15 TRAINING BREATH-HOLD QUESTIONS Ethan Yeo "Would you say going out spearfishing is going to make you in become a better diver vs doing freediving training in the pool?" Isaac "How can you increase your bottom time?" and "How can I hold my breath longer?" Isaac "Is bloodshift a physiological response that can be trained?" Damian Mckay "What are the best exercises to get more bottom time/depth?" @pickford_cole "If he had to pick between dynamic pool training and static, which would he choose?" Isaac "is increased muscle mass problematic to breath-hold diving?" Isaac "what are some safety considerations for pool training?" Isaac “How much does your attitude towards contractions affect them?” Isaac “Are your own ideas or your own limitations the biggest barrier to longer breath-holds and deeper diving?” What is the best way to overcome these? 42:00 EQUALIZING QUESTIONS R Andrew Baker "Can everyone hands free Equalize?" Jake Cross "What are the common issues with equalising? E.g one ear equalises before the other." . Use the Code NOOBSPEARO to save 40% Isaac "If you put a month into training your equalization and Eustachian Tubes, how long will that adaptation last?" 49:55 DEEPER FREEDIVE SPEARFISHING Kurt Raymond "How do you equalise when you go past that 30+meter mark? I recently dived to 30mtrs on a course and I felt like I had to equalise slightly differently once I hit around the 25mtr mark. I’ve heard of having to bring air back into your mouth. I wasn’t down there for long enough to work out what was going on but I was still able to equalise, just slightly differently to normal. Is there dry training you can do for this technique?" Joe Pedro "Can you share your wisdom on chin tuck dive & what injuries can be caused by looking (neck extended) out in front of you; typical Spearfishing form compared to proper diver form..the little things that cause nightmares due to lack of “under pressure” knowledge basically." Mackenzie Logan “I have a Similar question to Joe Pedro. Once you start going over 30m-40m how long does it take your body to acclimatize to the new depths? If you've done all your stretches and relaxing on the top perfectly, what are some of the little things like neck movements that we should be careful of and how long/how many dives to depth until you can start to move your head a little more comfortably?” To elaborate on this: I think there will be 2 answers depending on whether we are spearfishers vs freedivers.. If you are spearfishing and it is either your first time diving to these depths or you only go diving once a month or so how will this affect your "training adaptations" of diving to that depth? Will you lose them each time you go out again to dive? If you're freediving and training frequently will you be able to improve and keep your training adaptations. I think in your last interview he said he could come back after a month or so of not training and pretty much start again from where he had been diving to before? Thomas Ripard "I'd also like to ask about deeper diving. Once you start to get more comfortable with getting to 30m(ish), is there anything in particular one needs to do to prepare yourself to get past the 30m mark? Also anything safety related one should be aware of as you get past 30m? Cheers! Discovering the noobspearo podcast was the best thing that happened to me in 2020, keep em coming 66:00 OTHER QUESTIONS Rob James "When is having an underwater UFC rematch with Craig McNiven "What are the hurdles of running a free diving business, cashflow, cancellations, COVID, marketing and customer retention. Is it like a dream to do what you love for an income every day? Could you get the business to a point where it could be run without you?" Jason Harris "Not strictly diet related.. but does Adam have any food items he avoids when leading up to a dive day to keep the sinus systems clean" Isaac "Can we have the Dairy and Mucus Production Urban Legend Discussion?" @nicholasmorsecodes "How many wetsuits does he own? 10+ at least! where does he keep them all?" 79:50 WHEN IS ADAM COMING TO MY PART OF THE WORLD? @scubasteve212 "Will he do a freediving course in Batemans bay in the future 🙌" @bard_antonsen "First: thank you so much for your podcast! I have learned a lot by listening to most of your episodes. I started freediving 2 years ago. I had to participate in a freediving class since my son was too young to go alone. I was afraid and far away from my comfort zone. I overcome my fears and now I love the water. Question to Adam: I'd love to meet him, but I live in Norway and have a low budget. Will there be any chance to see him in the land of the big halibuts? Our coast is amazing. I'm just saying... An event with Adam in Norway would be epic🤩" @mansoor_hsd "When he come Lakshadweep (India)?" 83:50 PATRON LISTENER LIVE QUESTIONS Greg Rothaus "Hi Adam, I'm 62. What's your advice to older divers with regards to training and spearfishing?" Greg Rothaus "I am going on a month long freedive training retreat in Dahab, Egypt. How do you recommend I make the most of a trip like this? Captain Dan Walsh comments of teaching/freediving as a job, Eustashian tube solutions and advice for older divers. Stu Harwood "I find after a day spearing I am absolutely rooted, do you have any tips for mitigating this? (becoming unrooted) Duncan Henderson "With equalizing, do you do one grouper call on the way down or multiple grouper calls?"

dead set pearler of a podcast! listened to every episode, many twice. you boys need to pump out more episodes, hate having to wait 2 weeks for a new one! love all the actionable tips and tricks! definitely helped my diving which in turn helped get my first kingy and snapper this past nz summer. plenty of banter, but could probably do with a few more aussie jokes! especially coming into rugby season. chuurr boys, keep it up!!
