The Waterpeople Podcast is a gathering place for our global ocean community to dive into the critical conversations of our culture –  through storytelling.

We wanted an inclusive place to share stories from diverse voices within surfing culture from around the world.

We begin each episode with a simple question: “Tell us about a time or experience after which you were never the same…” and sit with some of the most adept waterpeople on the planet to explore common themes of aquatic lives lived well: ecology, adventure, community, activism, science, egalitarianism, inclusivity, meaningful play.  And surfing, of course.


Committed to Questions Waterpeople Podcast

To wrap up the third season, Lauren and Dave turn the mic on one another for a meandering chat through surf adventure stories,  common questions from listeners,  and their own answers to the central Waterpeople question about a time or experience after which you were never the same. We'll be back with a stacked fourth season in May or June, full of fresh stories,  inspiring ideas, and plenty of laughs. If you have a spare moment, please consider leaving a review of the podcast or sharing an episode with a friend – both help us to find the best stories from our global community of waterpeople.  …Listen with Lauren L.
