EPISODE 28 – Tuesday 1st February 2022 – “GETTING GOING”

So, welcome to episode 28 of the REQUEST2021 podcast. I do hope you like our new theme music. Please let us know what you think.

Now that the team are back from Antarctica each of our individual projects are still ongoing and mine is to continue to produce a soundscape record of our project including this podcast.

I have over 300 sound files to process and edit for you so you can follow along with the key moments of the expedition itself and find out about some of our fellow passengers and crew on board the Bark Europa.

It really was an incredible life-changing voyage for all of us and it is our hope that we can now share some of the adventure by following up with photos, videos, project reports and this podcast.

This episode is subtitled “Getting Going” and covers the period between Christmas and New Year as the team made our way out to South America and prepared for the voyage.
