Using robots, underwater iPads, 3D printing, and other new tech, scientists are discovering shipwrecks that are rewriting our history. Jo Best's cover story on the discovery of the Antikythera merchanism—a 2,000 year old computer—and two other breakthrough explorations was one of the most popular TechRepublic articles of 2015.

Now, we've taken it and turned it into an audio story and made it available for free in the feed of The TechRepublic Podcast (subscribe via RSS or iTunes). You can also listen directly in the embedded player below.
