Hi and Thanks for listening to Episode 28 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  Every weldor has always wondered what it would be like to be an Underwater Weldor, so we thought this would be a great topic.  Only problem is none of us here on the podcast has any experence with anything to do with even diving so we brought in an expert, Nate Martin.  This is an awesome episode with a ton of information!  We talked about what it's really like to be a diver in today's day and age.  So download, pop those earbuds in, hit play, drop your hood, and enjoy!
