Scuba Obsessed Episode 190 – Steve Lewis – Rebreathers and Scuba Books

Steve Lewis

Mack, Jim and Darrin have special guest Steve Lewis on the show this week. Steve provides us some insight into his diving background and talks about his books he has recently published. If things on the podcast seem a little broke up it is due to soggy internet (at least that is our excuse).
