Below the surface: The stories behind underwater world records

As part of NautiWeek, you’ll meet two people who broke world records while underwater on this episode of Audacious.

Budimir Šobat won a world record for holding his breath underwater for almost 25 minutes! What advice on breathing does he have for the rest of us?

Then, we connect with Dr. Joe Dituri, first as he was living in a hotel 30 feet below sea level for 100 days… And then after he resurfaces, setting the world record for the longest time living underwater.
