Rising Tide #96 – The Late Don Walsh in His Own Words

In a Special Encore Episode of Rising Tide we revisit our June 2022 talk with the late Ocean Pioneer, Don Walsh, who passed away on Nov. 12 at the age of 92. In 1960 he and Jacque Picard became the first humans to reach the deepest part of the ocean – almost 7 miles down in the Challenger Deep. He talks about that journey and its near disaster, why ocean exploration didn’t go the way of the Space Race, and also gives his unvarnished take on deep-sea mining and other ocean issues. So here again, Don Walsh!
