Released Tuesday, 19th November 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
What you are about to hear is the first-hand account of the experiences of Richard "Harry" Harris during the Thai cave rescue. His excitement at the opportunity to participate was quickly replaced by the trepidation of what the rescue team faced. They almost certainly would witness the deaths of the 12 boys and their coach and there was little hope that they would be successful. But they had to try.

Harry had to deal with ethical dilemmas as he agreed to the plan to anesthetise the kids and then submerge them underwater for up to 3 hours to transport them out of the cave.

This account focuses on the events and also on the diving aspects of the rescue. How they actually accomplished the dives, the equipment they used the conditions they faced the skills sets, what went well and the near misses that occurred.
All this and much more...
