Dr Daniel Price - Man On A Mission23/03/2019 Duração: 32min
Danny Price is a man of many talents. He's a climate researcher, Antarctic traverse expert, passionate climate campaigner, Edmund Hillary Fellow, he’s also the co-founder of Offcut Caps but mostly importantly just a really nice guy! Enjoy this fascinating episode, you may just be shocked, surprised and you may just be inspired.
Dr Andrew J. Wright - Marine DJ23/03/2019 Duração: 15min
Andrew's excitement and passion shines through his voice, if anything this guy is just a rare kind of producer. So really it’s no wonder he’s found himself recording wildlife audio to see what secrets it holds! Lucky for us a podcast is also completely based on audio (ha how good) and now it’s his turn to reveal some of the secrets of his epic work. See Andrew's science profile here. See Andrew's social feed @marinebrit on Twitter. The lovely Killer Whale Audio, mid podcast, was recorded under permit by K070 and Regina Eisert, thank you! Also thank you to Regina for this photograph of Andrew in the field.
Dr Rochelle Constantine - Ocean Wonder Woman23/03/2019 Duração: 43min
An accomplished biologist, an inspirational lecturer, and a relentless champion for the marine environment. Rochelle is based out of the University of Auckland’s School of Biological Sciences and Institute of Marine Science. I really didn’t have to much of an idea on where my conversation with Rochelle would go! I was pleasantly surprised when we found ourselves chatting about subjects like humpback whale migrations, we also found out that Antarctica holds a what I consider one huge Summer food festival for ocean enjoying animals every year and some of Rochelle's precious moments with nature during her career. We need more people like Rochelle in this world. Enjoy! Thank you Paul Ensor of this gorgeous photo of Rochelle on the Antarctic Whale Expedition.
Dr Michelle LaRue - Emperor Lifestyles23/03/2019 Duração: 23min
Michelle is a rather incredible scientist for many reasons. Why? Well, one of them is because she conducts much of her work partially from space... This episode is dedicated just about entirely to arguably the most famous Antarcticans, the Emperor Penguin. She is also a great communicator of science and is all for having a yarn about it! Thank you, Michelle, for your time. Catch Michelle on Twitter @drmichellelarue or check out her website for more of her work! www.drmichellelarue.com
Jonny Harrison - Winter Is Coming...23/03/2019 Duração: 17min
Jonny has a rather incredible 'job', he is the Winter Leader at Scott Base. We caught up and had a chat about what a Winter in Antarctica entails and how the team keeps grounded and stimulated through what I can consider, pretty much an out of this world experience! Winter in the Antarctic may not be so dark at all… Thank you Jonny for the incredible Antarctic Aurora photographs and time-lapses.
Dr Regina Eisert - Killer Knowledge23/03/2019 Duração: 19min
Regina is a very knowledgeable lady. I'm amazed at how much we managed to cover in just under 20 minutes. Megafauna (Killer Whales mostly), how she founded the TPA (Top Predator Alliance), Marine Protected Areas, the Ross Sea Region and more... You'll find Regina on social media (FB, Twitter & Instagram) @TPAonIce where you'll find amazing content of the science, adventures and animals in her life! Thank you Andrew J. Wright for this amazing photograph of Regina.
Robin Rawson - Antarctic Leadership23/03/2019 Duração: 45min
As the title might have suggested, in this episode we talked a little less about Antarctica and a little more about leadership, personal growth and all those things that make us feel like we can in fact always strive to become better people everyday. This is a chat I’ll listen back to over and over for the rest of my life. I think there's some real gold in it!
Bruce Stevenson - Sh*t Happens23/03/2019 Duração: 12min
Bruce is the kind of guy where the only place I can imagine meeting him is in fact at the bottom of the world in Antarctica. Bruce is the Water Engineer at Scott Base and while that may sound like quite a standard job description, he’s absolutely integral to ensuring the bases critical hydro systems stay running through both the Summer and Winter seasons! Was a pleasure talking sh*t with you Bruce, both literally and figuratively! Oh, Bruce also happens to be the only Base resident that jams the bag pipes in his spare time! You always need someone who can play the pipes around right?
Professor Gary Wilson - Change Catalyst23/03/2019 Duração: 52min
Gary is one of New Zealand's leading Climate scientists and legends. He has over 3 decades of Antarctic science experience and expeditions under his belt. Gary’s a climate legend around the world because of his work as a professor in the Marine Environment space. He’s focused on marine geology and the marine geological record of ocean and climate change. He tucked into some more big picture thinking in the episode which I couldn't be more stoked on to finish the series with. Enjoy this chat and Gary's wisdom!
