Ep 488: Submarine Diving The Great Blue Hole Update - Erika Bergman


Erika Bergman is a submarine pilot, engineer, and a National Geographic Explorer. We talked with her back in episode 427 about taking Sir Richard Branson and Fabien Cousteau (grandson of famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau) on a submarine adventure into the depth of Belize's Great Blue Hole.

The mission was successfully completed back in December and we're having her recount the adventure today!

In 2013 she received a National Geographic Explorers grant for her "Classrooms Under the Sea" expedition which live-streamed submarine expeditions to classrooms. She's a superb storyteller with many interesting tales and accomplishments to share!

She is also the Founder of GEECs - Global Engineering & Exploration Counselors; providing a network of thrilling engineering camps to girls around the world.
