Hey There, I'm Andrew. 
I am a Marine Ecologist and the host for The Speak Up For Blue Podcast where I discuss the Ocean, the issues it faces and introduce you to the people who are working their butts off to protect the Ocean so that you can be more aware of how you can live for a better Ocean. 

Thanks For Visiting - I am working to build a network of audio and video podcasts that cover ocean related topics to increase our audience's knowledge on the Ocean and to help guide  you to live for a better Ocean. 

My Mission To Protect The Ocean - The fact that you are reading this shows me that you believe in my mission to help the Ocean. I really appreciate that. I work hard to provide you with the information to need to help you live for a better Ocean.

Why Patreon? - Patreon is a great way for me to build a platform that has an impact on how people live for a better ocean that is independent for any organization and government. It gives me the opportunity to have an influence on Ocean Conservation without restrictions. Podcasting for the Ocean is very new in my field, but it is a great way to engage people on a new platform that want to do their part and just need a little bit of information to do it. 

How Patreon Can Help
Your Patreon contribution would accomplish 2 things:
  1. It pay for my equipment, software, marketing practices and my time
  2. The podcast can remain independent from influencers in the field, which means I can be direct and not afraid of what I need to say
  3. You are joining a community of Ocean Conservationists, who live all over the world, that would like to live for a better Ocean and get to interact to build a better future.
I would like to build an online platform that can provide you with the information and resources you need to Live for a Better Ocean.

Active Podcasts:
The Speak Up For Blue Podcast: This is our flagship podcast that has been active for almost 2.5 years and gained over 150K downloads and growing with over 10K downloads/month. The podcast is hosted by me, where I publish 3 shows/week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Monday show is called Ocean Update where I go throw the recent ocean stories that I think are important. The Wednesday show is an interview with someone who is doing some cool things in the field. The Friday show is called Ocean Talk Friday, where I bring a friend on the podcast to discuss the 4-5 ocean stories of that week and give our take on it.

Upcoming Podcasts:
Marine Conservation happy Hour: This show is co-hosted by me, @Craken_MacCraic, @DrScarlettSmash and @MarineBrit, where we get together to discuss the latest topics of Marine Conservation over a few drinks. The show is more of a lighter side of Marine Conservation...especially after more than one drink!!! It will post a new episode every week. This show will be coming shortly. We've recorded 13 episodes and just need to create the cover art then we can publish. YAY!!!

The Speak Up For Blue Podcast (French version): This version of the podcast will be hosted by Dr. Lyne Morissette, a marine mammal expert and great science communicator. Lyne will be publishing episodes about Marine Science and Conservation, but with a French emphasis. She will interview French researchers and discuss ocean-related topics of all sorts in French. The show will post a new episode once a week.

The Speak Up For Blue Podcast (Spanish version): I am still working out the details with the host that I have chosen for this show; however, it will be a similar format to the French version...but in Spanish. The show will post an episode once per week.

We are working with other established podcasts that will be included in the network, but are produced independently. 

The Podcast Network: The purpose of the network is to help audience members from each podcast find other like minded podcasts on oceans, freshwater or hobby/lifestyle related around oceans. 
Thanks for your interest in supporting my efforts. Feel free to contact me [email protected] if you have any questions about supporting me.

Happy Conservation,


Note: Pledges are per month.

$84.64 of $100 per month
The Speak Up For Blue Podcast is my baby and is the cornerstone of all my efforts in building a network of ocean-related podcasts

Equipment and software costs to run the podcast can add up. Earning $100/month will allow me to update pieces of my podcast studio so I can maintain, or improve the quality of the podcast for sound and content.
