Wow! What a wonderful podcast. Thanks so much to Tara for opening up this line of discovery. Awesome. โค๏ธ
Moving and inspiring!
I needed the healing, exploration and journey of this Podcast! I was drawn into the waters and was healed by the Ocean. More! More! More!
National Geographic explorer Tara Roberts quit her job and upended her life to became a certified scuba diver so she could join forces with the Black divers of Diving With a Purpose (DWP) and make Into the Depths, a show that quite literally brings us to the depths of the ocean to document the wreckage of a few of the thousands of slave ships that wrecked in the Atlantic Ocean during the transatlantic slave trade. What did you do to make your podcast?
This is an interesting podcast.
I found the topic interesting but I couldnโ€™t put up with the very fast speech. So that is the reason I didnโ€™t continue with this topic. There is no place to enter my nickname
The older I get, the more reluctant I am to wade into tragic subjects. However, the mystique of diving for shipwrecks coupled with the empowerment of the divers as they give voices to the victims is fascinating and compelling. An excellent podcast with a diverse cast.
I absolutely loved this podcast. I learned so much about history, slave ships, diving and myself.
I absolutely loved this podcast! So much that Iโ€™ve shared it & recommended it to countless people since finishing it. I also watched Clotilda on Disney+ (National Geographic) and though it was an interesting short documentary, it could not hold a candle to the worthiness of THIS podcast and the stories without the stories that the author shares. A+++!!!
Truly worth the listen- from the science, to the new perspective on the slave trade, to the empowerment of African Americans being the ones in the field to be making the archaeological discoveries, to the hostโ€™s own voice and story. I feel enriched by the experience.
This is the first podcast review I have ever written (since starting to listen to them when Serial debuted). I loved learning about the history of the shipwreck, their journeys and the lives of the people on the ships. The details and the empathy the host and divers brought to the shipwrecks and people felt genuine and sincere. Concrete science with data in service of healing (as one of the interviewees said)! The personal journey of the host was also nice. I want to know more about her matriarchs too!
Thank you for doing this work.
Engrossing, fascinating, heartfelt. Perfect kind of podcast.
Great work yโ€™all :)
I loved this podcast but the sound effects and music in the background take away from the podcast. I wouldโ€™ve enjoyed it so much more without all the noise.
This was so fascinating and educational. Very well told story and has me gripped every step of the way.
What an exciting and enthralling podcast about a phenomenal community of divers. History, science, socio-political issues presenting in the form of diving adventures, that's easy to understand and listen to!
Tara does a remarkable job bringing the full range of emotions and tragic but fascinating history to life. Highly recommend to anyone interested in learning about this important subject matter.
I learned a lot in listening to this podcast. I highly recommend it!
Tara is a natural story teller and she has an amazing story to share. Such an important story to learn about and for the divers to continue to discover.
This is a magical and immersive auditory experience. Tara Roberts explores the stories of people dedicated to lifting up the voices of those who perished during the Middle Passage. Along the way, she also shares her own journey of discovery with humor, candor, and grace. A must listen!
I love hearing the storyโ€™s about the slave ships!!
Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Thank you for the efforts and all of steps Tara had to go through to even do the historical and measuring aspects of the DWP dives.
This podcast is absolutely amazing. Discovering the sunken ships of the Middle Passage is about so much more than the ships, it is returning the lost souls who were stolen back to their homes, and uncovering for us our lost histories and heritages. Thank you for sharing this with us all, for me it was really liberating, I learned so much and feel called to learn more.
Thank for taking us on this incredible journey and sharing a history that hasnโ€™t be told to everyone.
I believe that this research is being divinely orchestrated by individuals who arguably have been handpicked, and ordained by God, to carry out what I define as a ministry.
Thank you for capturing this history and all of the work that you did to bring it to the public. Iโ€™m his was so amazing!
I found it disappointing and tough to get over the constant tribalism/identity by skin color for groups and even individuals and with it the false idea that slaves were captured (minority of) and not traded (Majority of) I also found it disappointing that some divers think they are getting closer to their lost family ancestors/members and are looking for there โ€˜ancestral tribe โ€˜ Do those involved not know how genetically diverse Africa is and was? Africa was/is home the most genetically diverse place on the planet. Also: Alex Haley โ€˜rootsโ€™ is riddled with historical inaccuracies, I was thrown back that there are people in the 21 century that think the book/movie ROOTS is historically accurate. Tara is charming, warm, and intelligent. Like all stories of manโ€™s inhumanity to man this story can be emotionally tough to dive into (pun intended) while simultaneously being important that we do dive into it.
Brought me to tears of joy and inspired curiosity!
Thanks you for shining a light on a part of history that has been so very underserved.
Wonderfully inspiring!!!
Great Storytelling about a story that needs to be told! I felt a healing listening after listening to this podcast. This is a powerful podcast. I truly appreciate Tiara for her transparency. Great podcast!!!
This podcast was absolutely beautiful. I loved every second. Such wealth of knowledge and history, and honoring our ancestors and the descendants who will learn and continue to explore. Iโ€™m very grateful ๐Ÿคโœจโœจ

These divers are SUPER HEROS!
Glad I found this podcast. Great for explorers at heart.
Came across this podcast and was blown away. A wonderful journey into history and discovery of self. A must listenโ€ฆ
So many of us with ancestors who arrived from European countries a century or two ago take it for granted that we can trace our ancestry through records kept through generations. Tara brings to me the very clear understanding of how it must feel to not have that knowledge and how it must feel to uncover even tenuous connections through the diving projects. It breaks my heart that African descendants have had so much trauma through the generations. Thank you for sharing these moving and inspiring stories. Tara is such a good storyteller as well!
I loved everything about this podcast! It was powerful and shows more about our history then slavery!
I am recommending this to my entire family - it is a โ€œmust hearโ€! You are to be commended, Tara - you put your heart and soul in this one! Outstanding!!
Excellent combination of history, empathy and spirituality.
Just finished the first episode and I am hooked!!!
I rarely write reviews but this podcast is filling my heart with pride and sadness at the same time. Sadness because as an African-American male, I feel like a unwanted stranger in โ€œmy land.โ€ When the stores are being told, itโ€™s like Iโ€™m with the divers on these expeditions. The slave trade is SO painful but this is something we (I) needed to hear. Thank you, thank you, thank you โค๏ธ
This podcast has it all: ship wrecks, history, maritime archeology, story-telling and an identity journey that resonates deeply. Iโ€™m grateful to have found this podcast after discovering that my own African ancestry narrative had been hidden under layers of white narratives.
Uncle Melvin is smiling down on you Queen!! I love the fact that Shy and Woo experienced this amazing journey with you
Please make more! This is such amazing storytelling and even more important workโ€ผ๏ธโ€ฆ Thank you - to everyone involvedโ˜บ๏ธ. Listening amazed!
Greetings, Came across your podcast looking for something different and educational. Wow, you did not disappoint!!!! I admire and appreciation you and your journey. I also listened to you on NPR. .. amazing interview on Black Divers!!! You have a new listener and fan. Iโ€™m looking forward to your next podcast. Thank you!!
My soul needs this๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ
I have enjoyed every second of this podcast. I am especially enjoying episode 3. One of my favorite places on this planet is the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. That place speaks to and feeds my spirit in the most magical of ways. Now I know why!
