Talking to Josh Richards a cave diver from down under!

Over a brew Josh tells me about how when not locked down due to Covid restrictions, he dives his Sidemount rebreather in the freshwater caves of Mount Gambia and he’s planning on moving to Mars

Grab yourself a brew and listen to this interesting story. 

🔴 More about this week’s episode:
Physicist, Explosives Engineer, Soldier, Comedian, Astronaut Candidate – one thing Josh Richards can never be accused of is being boring. After a decade of picking up booby traps with the Australian Army, slogging through mud with British Commandos, being science adviser to the richest artist in the world, and performing comedy wearing a giant koala suit to confused audiences around the world, Josh found his true calling in September 2012 when he discovered the Mars One project.

Selected from over 200,000 initial applicants, Josh is currently one of 100 astronaut candidates short-listed for a one-way mission to Mars in 2031. As an in-demand professional speaker, Josh’s storytelling makes for compelling & entertaining corporate keynote presentations on leadership, small-team dynamics, and the challenges of life in space that are certain to leave any audience with plenty to think about.

With a natural talent for sharing science through stand-up comedy, he’s a passionate and highly-visible ambassador for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) education, and his public science events and school visits inspire people of all ages to engage with science and discover the sky is not the limit.

Besides regularly writing articles on space science, engineering, psychology and culture on Patreon, he’s also the author of Becoming Martian – a humourous look at how colonising Mars will change our species in body, mind and soul.

✅ “Fancy a brew?” a Scuba Diving inspired chat over a brew about life, adventure, mental and physical resilience and determination to succeed in the sport we love. 

✅ The podcast where I’ll be talking to those who influenced me as a diver, about their incredible experiences and how they found mental and physical resilience, whilst devoting their lives to Scuba Diving. These will (hopefully) be insightful and exciting discussions about people taking on scuba diving and its challenges, and how they came out the other side stronger through finding inspiration in connecting with nature’s underwater world.
