The Mariner Podcast #36: Interview with Rob Phillips

In this episode I interview Rob Philips who is both a friend from various Spartan offshore adventures and also one of the cast of the new series of 'Below Decks' a reality TV show about super yacht crew.  We catch up with Rob in his 'normal' job working as a exploration geologist in the Jungles of Fiji.

As always with these remote interviews it is tricky to manage the sound quality so apologies if there is a little background noise or uneven tone and in this show please be aware there is a little swearing.

The Mariner Podcast #35: A is for Anchoring

In this episode I start a new series intended to deep dive into various seamanship topic, organized only by their relationship to the alphabet!

This series will be done entirely 'off-the-cuff' and without research as a self critical way of unearthing what I actually know as a 'professional'.

The theory is that unlike other professions that may allow for research to be done 'on the job' sailing requires it's adherents to store all relevant info in the old grey matter for instant application- If that is true then it should be easy to spot the 'pros' from the 'cons' by simply asking them to put their money where their mouth is- lets see how I gt on!!

The big question I need you to help with is: 'If A is for Anchoring... what are B & C for?'
