Big Deep is about Scuba Diving, FreeDiving, Surfing, and Marine Science, and focuses on those who have a deep connection to our world’s oceans; connections strong enough that they have dedicated some part of their lives to being in or working on behalf of the water. Big Deep presents crafted interviews with music and sound effects, to create a cinematic interview, something akin to "This American Life" for the Ocean. In this excerpt we speak with Jill Heinerth, extreme underwater cave diver, best-selling author, member of The Explorers Club, and Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society. In part one of two episodes with Jill, she relates the risks and rewards of such an extreme lifestyle and tells us why she pursues such a unique passion.
