Get your red cap and your Aqualung! This is not a drill, people, we’ve got Fabien Cousteau on the show! In this extra-long chat, Jason reconnects with Fabien to talk all things under-the-sea. From his latest project Proteus to classic undersea habitats and water-powered watches, we even learn about how a birthday request for fried chicken ended up starting this Cousteau’s prolific career under the water. 

A rendering of Proteus, a next-generation undersea habitat and research platform. 

Before we dive into the interview (sorry, had to), Jason and James chat about Jason’s first time watching Predator, one of James’ most Vancouver-themed watches, watch-themed t-shirts, and the mechanical problem that saw Jason’s classic Land Rover taking a trailer to the shop. 

Stay in the mix for Jason’s Cousteau-appropriate final notes and James’ ramblings about the latest supercar from the man that made the F1. A huge thank you to Fabien Cousteau for being on the show and to you for listening!
