Why call is Aronnax?
Pierre Aronnax is a man of science and of the seas. He is a main protagonist in Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Vingt mille lieues sous les mers). Set in the first person from the point of view of Aronnax, the tale tells about the fantastic technology of a environmentally friendly vessel (The Nautilus), the ocean environment the story sends its heroes through, and the lives of Captain Nemo and his crew. Like the eponymous Aronnax, the podcast also focuses on telling the news and stories around the ocean industries, the technologies, the environment and the people who work in them.
