Four of the interviews I recorded at the 2018 Australian Antarctic Festival in Hobart.
Bob Tompkins, Joe Johnson, Ian Toohill and John Gillies share some of their experiences in the south and Dave Davies rounds the episode out with some Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Episode 068 is here for your listening pleasure.
