The Amateur Traveler joins Chris (a different Chris) as he talks about swimming with Humpback Whales in the waters off the Pacific island country of Tonga. This episode features whale song recorded with an iRiver and a hydrophone. (This was the 1st of 5 episodes that Chris has done with the Amateur Traveler and I have often called him my favorite guest).
