The Mariner Podcast #28: Sleep Now or Die Quicker

This episode presents some very important and thought provoking information that I would advise all listeners to research on their own so they can confirm the facts presented and make changes, if necessary to their life on and off the boat. 

What subject could cause me to be so somber and serious? Storm tactics? Immigration laws?

No, this week I am talking about sleep. The importance of sleep is a weirdly absent convention amongst sailors who above all travelers and sports people expose themselves repeatedly and needlessly to the dangers of sleep deprivation.  This is mainly due to the fact that we are,  on the whole- hugely uneducated about this critical subject.

So, clip on, sit down & listen in; it's time to learn why the foolish old line, 'Sleep when you're dead' is mortally unwise and darkly ironic advice.
