This episode has been a long time coming and the TGN boys are thrilled to welcome David Concannon to the show. David is a highly specialized lawyer that works in and around adventuring, expeditions, diving, and more. He has been to the Titanic several times, was among the youngest people ever to join The Explorer’s Club, helped lead the expedition to recover the Apollo F-1 Rockets, and so much more (literally).
Came back to this episode after the tragic events of the Titan. Coming from the aviation sector, I hope that people learn from this and there is more oversight/regulation to prevent a repeat occurrence. When appropriate, it would be interesting to hear David's thoughts on how this will shape the future for these types of operations. No doubt an inherently risky endeavor, but there has to be a better way.
Really interesting points made about private space / private deep sea exploration. I seriously think that the Triton 36000/2 is the most significant piece of technology that we’ve seen this century. Never before have we been able to go full ocean depth, anywhere on the globe. It’s changed everything; but is still weirdly under-known. Hey ho.
Good episode but David Concannon sure loves himself some David Concannon.
Thanks to TGN, I’d have never known that Jeff Bezos needs a guy with such niche specialization.
Great guest. Titanic in it’s entirety goes way beyond my wildest imagination.
You guys are going to Wind Up Chicago again? What about NYC?
Great interview! I had the pleasure to meet David Concannon on an expedition to Manu National Park in Peru back in the 90s. Awesome guy!
This may be the best guest to date.
Great episode 👏👏👏
Fantastic episode with David, what an interesting fellow who can so casually discuss his underwater exploits. Thanks for the support!
