ReQuest2021 Podcast Ep. 18

EPISODE 18 – Thu 1st Apr 2021 – A quick chat with Jan Chojecki about the upcoming Quest Chronicle project which is to be a day by day (almost!) account of the original Shackleton-Rowett (Quest) Expedition 1921‑1922 via a Blog and Twitter account. We also have some exclusive details of the use of advanced BBC camera technology on Macquarie Island. Plus, there is the ReQuest interview with Stephen Scott Fawcett, polar historian specialising in the life of Ernest Shackleton and founder of the Sir Ernest H. Shackleton Appreciation Society Facebook Group which now has over 6000 members worldwide.

The ReQuest2021 podcast is documenting the Kent Scouts #ReQuest2021 Research Project all the way to Antarctica and back again! Interviews, Scouting historical links, events and research project work recorded along the way. Part of Alan Noake’s Antarctic Soundscapes project.
