Beyond the Breakers is a podcast about loss and lessons learned at sea. My goal is to share a topic that I have been captivated by since I first heard Gordon Lightfoot's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" as a child: why do ships sink? Through this podcast I hope to provide a wide range of stories. Some will consist of legends or tales handed down from the golden age of sail. Others will be from the "black and white" age of still photography and telegraph. Perhaps most terrifying are the stories that are told in full color and through modern communication. It is my hope that I will be able to share captivating stories of human survival while also highlighting what we have gained from so many tragic losses at sea. Additionally, although this is a serious topic that will always be treated in a respectful manner, there will be plenty of opportunity for humor along the way.
