Episode 130. Cousteau Curieux

Alex and Jonathan take to the open seas today and follow the films and life of French explorer and documentarian Jacques Cousteau. We’re talking about his documentaries The Silent World (1956), World Without Sun (1964), Voyage to the Edge of the World (1976), and the more recent biopic of his life The Odyssey (2016). We discuss the early foibles of Cousteau’s adventures, the trail he blazed for modern conservationism, and his lasting impact on modern science-focused entertainment.
