Every time I podcast something good happens - Andrew Lewin Interview

As a Marine Biologist, Andrew Lewin from Speak Up for the Ocean Blue podcast (available in directories like Apple, and Google) just wanted to talk about treating the ocean better and keeping it safe. That was less than 10 years ago, now he's a key figure at Ocean Related events, and is becoming THE podcast about ocean conservation. Today we will hear parts of Andrew's story.

Homework For White People

37:51 If you are not a person of color please, its time to get educated. Watch the documentary called The 13th on Youtube. Listen to "Seeing White." You will be amazed at what you learn. Corrupt politicians have not gone away at the local, state, and federal governments. We need to pay attention and vote them out. Rent the movie Slay the Dragon an Amazon. We need to vote these corrupt people out of office who don't do what we want. We need serious prison and justice reform in this country.
