      The Society has just launched the Mariner’s Mirror Podcast, which is designed to become a global platform for sharing current maritime history and heritage projects in all periods and in all locations. Do please pass the word around and post ideas here for exciting maritime-themed projects that you may know of and that we could feature.

      The podcast can be found here on the publisher’s website https://play.acast.com/s/the-mariners-mirror-podcast

      The podcast can also be found on iTunes, Spotify and wherever you get your podcasts from! In the coming weeks it will also appear on the Society’s website.

      Thanks
      Sam

        Listened to the first episode of the podcast on my morning walk. Excellent, anxious to listen to more. You mentioned a wide variety of topics you plan to cover. Three I didn’t hear mentioned, but I’d like to suggest would be:
        1) Sail Training Vessels. I am a graduate of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and sailed aboard the Eagle, a war reparation vessel (was the Horst Vessel), and what an outstanding introduction to the sea, maritime heritage, and history for a kid from Midwestern United States.
        2) Life Saving Services. Of course with my background, I’d love to hear more about the RNLI and similar services around the world, and their very specialized vessels and equipment.
        3) Ethnographic Vessels. I am thinking about the variety of self-made craft used around the world. Of course I have a special fondness for the coracle, and just recently watched a documentary on the Afon Towy, showing fishermen in coracles at night on the river at Carmarthen.
        But whatever you cover, I am going to be listening. Great way to stir interest in all things maritime.
        Sincerely,
