By Staff | Jul 8, 2020

The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel introduces Shellcast, the podcast designed to bring a slice of Southwest Florida to people all over the world. Launched on June 23, it gives listeners a chance to soak up some virtual sun and hear what makes Southwest Florida so special.

“I’m a big fan of podcasts and can’t wait for everyone to give Shellcast a listen,” Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau Executive Director Tamara Pigott said. “By downloading the podcast, listeners anywhere in the world can enjoy the sounds of our beaches, nature and interviews with locals.”

The first three episodes include an interview with Capt. Brian Holloway, with Captain Brian on the Water; a visit to the 2020 Burrowing Owl Festival and interviews with Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife members; and a walk on a Sanibel beach with Dorrie Hipschman, executive director of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum.

Shellcast is a collaborative effort with host and producer Jackie Parker, communications manager for the VCB. It is available on fortmyers-sanibel.com, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio and more.
