ReQuest2021 Podcast Ep. 16

EPISODE 16 – Mon 1st Feb 2021  – An update on our fundraising efforts, the story of Alan the eleven-year-old Antarctic Krill and the ReQuest interview with Philippa Davies, who hosts the Canterbury-based annual Antarctica enthusiasts’ event – Cantarctica and is also the founder of the Betjeman Society.

Some follow up thoughts from Philippa received after recording for the podcast…

“For variety you are welcome to swap my ginger biscuits for mint imperials. I never have travelled without them and have a tin full in my car. My grandchildren call them magic mints.” 

“Another fascinating link is that Louisa Young, Kathleen Scott’s daughter by her second marriage is a goddaughter of Betjeman. So, Betjeman and Scott link.”
