10/29/11: Podcast #79 Under the sea with disabled diver Brian Walker

In episode #79 of our disability podcast No Free Rides, Tiffiny is joined by quadriplegic diver Brian Walker, an ex-US Air Force man who’s been on over 40 dives in the past two years.

Tune in as they reveal the best place in the country to get your diving certification if you’re disabled and the equipment you’ll need to dive safely (and without freezing your ass off; a common quad complaint while diving). They also talk about Brian’s incredible neuro implants that help him move his hands again. And then somehow the conversation moves onto the Hooters Casino in Vegas.  A definite must listen.

Listen in the player below (run time is 54 minutes). No Free Rides is sponsored by EasyStand.
