Eric & Mike are back with Epsidoe 9 of the Unofficial SeaWorld Podcast, where they visit all 3 SeaWorld Resorts in Orlando, San Diego and San Antonio to bring you the latest SeaWorld news, rumors and information.

In this episode, Eric & Mike take on the Anti-SeaWorld documentary BlackFish, as they explore what life was like for Killer Whales before SeaWorld came into existence, and how they were treated like a nuisance animal.
