490 – Diving After the Jab

By

What does DAN Europe advise for diving after you receive a Vaccination? Listen to what we found out.

We also have received word of an Ohio Drive Quarry that is changing ownership.

What? Where are the missing episodes? Don’t worry. They are on their way. We have another significant format change coming in the next few weeks and wanted to get the current episode out before then.

— there are a few sections where Mack’s audio is a little clipping. We did clean it up as much as we could. It is still listenable, but does stutter and break a few times. The new format change should help address it or turn it into a big dumpster fire. Either way it could be entertaining. —
