We are thrilled to announce a new endeavor from the editors of gCaptain and leadership gurus at Sea Fever Consulting…
A Maritime podcast; Messing About In Ships.
Starting today, gCaptain’s own Captain John Konrad and our friend Peter Mello of Sea-Fever.org will be producing a weekly podcast about all things related to ships. Many of you may be familiar with Kenneth Graham’s 1908 classic children’s book, The Wind in the Willows in which Ratty declares to Mole:
“There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats“
Well, we may have grown up a bit but we still agree with Ratty; only now we mess about in slightly larger and more complicated vessels.
Each week we’ll explore stories that appear in gCaptain’s great Discoverer news section of their website. We also will select a blog or podcast for a weekly feature we call New Media Port of Call. We have plans to interview maritime professionals, authors, educators, regulators and others about issues that affect the maritime industry today and into the future. Finally, each episode will close with a selection music from the Podsafe Music Network for your enjoyment.
What we are most excited about is you taking an active role in shaping this project. We have set up a Messing About In Ships blog where the show notes and links from each episode will appear and we encourage you to comment there. Also consider recording a short audio comment, attach it as an MP3 file to an email and send it to [email protected] and we will find a way to integrate it into the program.
