Been following this show for quite awhile and LOVE it. Informative, never boring and always gets to the heart of the matter without the sensationalism so many other draining podcasts have. Though he covers heavy topics, they’re important and you end each episode with a bit of hope and optimism for progress toward real actionable change (even when things look bleak). His critiques are always fair. The style of the pod is also upbeat and entertaining, which helps. Gives many of us ocean conservation folks a sense of solidarity. Also love the length of each episode, easily digestible and packed with great well-researched info. Wouldn’t mind if it were longer, but perfect as is. Kudos!!! Keep speaking up for our ocean Blue. Thank you for this podcast.
Thanks, Dr. Lewis for all the work you’re doing. You have such great content and dissect some of the most critical concepts we in the marine world should be thinking about.
I left 4 stars cuz I might just be missing it and not here to be a jerk. I am legitimately confused though about why the Auto and Fashion industry who together make up almost 80 percent of plastic pollution on the ocean are not being addressed here. Flip flops, cigarettes, abs plastic straws are nothing compared to the normalized impact of these industries. Machine washing synthetic fibers is such an easy point to address, and I’m incredibly surprised no one is addressing this.
This is my favourite podcast I have found so far!! The host is great at disseminating information but it’s also not just scientific dribble - it’s fun to listen to and definitely makes you think. I also love how Andrew clearly cares very much about our oceans, I can definitely feel that passion coming through when I listen. I wish there were more podcasts out there like this! I’d recommend to any ocean lover.
This podcast is so informative and talks about really important and timely issues. Andrew's advice for marine biologists is spot on!
Podcasts like this show are what give me hope for the future as someone who feels the weight of our planet's environmental clock ticking away. Absolutely incredible. The guests that Andrew brings on for interviews are intelligent, entertaining and insightful - making topics that could be potentially easy to ignore engaging to dive into! Highly recommend subscribing and making this one of your go-to shows. Thank you Andrew and team Blue!
I'm studying in the field of the law of the sea, and pay more attention to the legislation of BBNJ. Checking all podcasts related to the ocean and suddenly i found one episode including guest Diva Amon. Suprised to notice scholars both in biology or law field has the same suspicion about the deep seabed mining. And that episode is abosultely triggering my interest about what's the future with MPA, or Area with Special Interest in the ABNJ. Besides, I think Andrew Lewin have shared his personal experiences and some thoughtuful advices with people who studying related to ocean field, which is really helpful for me. SO thank you for your knowledge sharing.
Love the episodes, new to the podcast. Sounds like SUFB 847 has been corrupted around 3:44 mark.
For users of any background who care about the ocean, want to learn more, and want to do something to make the world a better place— listen to this podcast. Not only do you get a podcast, but you also become part of an ocean loving community. The host encourages feedback and actively engages listeners. I can’t recommend enough, I’m basically addicted.
Skip the first 5 minutes of promotions and advertising per episode and you’re left with some good information. Wish so much time wasn’t spent trying to get people to visit his website and join patreon.
I love listening to this podcast when on a long road trip or during my commute. Andrew always brings up very salient and fascinating topics. My only complaint is that he tends to talk a lot, and the introductions can sometimes take up a quarter, if not more, of the episode. I wish he would make his introductions shorter!
I really appreciate this podcast, which is both wide ranging and laser focused on the health of our oceans. Great guests, great topics and an insane amount of content. If I could clone myself, I’d do so so I could listen to every single minute of SUFB!
Great show raising awareness for one of the biggest problems the world is facing now.
Awesome podcast to listen to especially while your gardening makes time go by pretty fast
I love nature and so it's awesome that Andrew is spreading the message that we need to protect Earth. We have the power to prevent bigger flooding, hurricanes, global warming, and more. The little actions we all take can be combined for a major affect.
I am so happy to have discovered this show. I live on the Maine coast and I find Andrew Lewin's perspective very relevant. The ocean is vital to our existance and I am thrilled to find a podcast dedicated to conservation. I can't wait to spread the word about Speak Up for Blue!
This show is so important. Facing so many issues in regards to environmental pollution and overfising, Andrew brings forth important information from experts in the field that everyone needs to hear!!
I love the mission and purpose of this podcast! There definitely needs to be more awareness about the ocean and this show covers it all. Well done!
I love the beach and all things marine life and love that you are talking about the stories concerning the ocean. And your voice is so great to listen to. Can't wait to take a deep dive into more episodes!
I've been looking for a way to learn about current marine conservation efforts. This podcast is very informative and perfect for my long commutes.
Highly recommend this podcast. Andrew does a great job spreading awareness of marine issues and ways that people can take action to address these problems.
I found this podcast to be facinating. Lot of stuff I didn't really think about so a fun way to learn
I love how Andrew is an advocate for our environment and he practices what he preaches. This show is informative and hopeful.
I think very few people really understand the issues in ocean conservation. This show provides material for scientists, teachers, and just you and me to live lives that are less impactful on our oceans and our planet as a whole. Love it.
