Deepwater Horizon, first person account


Are you curious what happened in the minutes and hours after the Deepwater Horizon explosion?  Take a listen to the Weekly Leader podcast 68 for a first hand account of the explosion and search and rescue efforts in an interview with Captain Alwyn Landry.  Captain Landry led the rescue of 115 people from the Deepwater Horizon immediately after the explosion. 

The Weekly Leader is the brainchild of our  friend Peter Mello.  Peter has deep maritime roots with the Sea Fever blog and the Messing About In Ships podcast.
