John Davidson, The Mad Giraffe Atlantic Rower
This week we chat with John Davidson. After a full career in the Army, serving in the elite SAS, and a second career in the global security industry, this man is always ready for a new challenge. So much so that he has only just returned from a successful solo crossing of the Atlantic in a small rowing boat - The Mad Giraffe. He didn't do this just for the adventure though, his aim was to raise money for a Motor Neurone Disease charity - My Name5 Doddie Foundation. Please help him achieve his goal and donate on his charity page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/madgiraffeatlanticrow
Bob Wellard - Fisheries Director - The Piscatorial SocietyWe might have missed 'Duffers Fortnight' this May but we should hopefully be allowed to go out and fish in the not too distant future. Bob Wellard has been fishing or involved in fishing his whole adult life. He has fished worldwide and now looks after the wonderful chalk streams of Hampshire and Wiltshire. This positive podcast should entertain you until you can get your rod and get out there!
Mark Hodson - Talking Game MagazineI thought the best way to introduce this was using the 'About Us info on the Talking Game website (https://talkinggame.co.uk):Game shooting is part of our national heritage. Talking Game is dedicated to playing its part in ensuring that it not only survives, but thrives. We firmly believe that all shot game should always be eaten and we hope that our pages actively encourage this objective, and that they reflect the many qualities and experiences associated with country pursuits. Above all, we celebrate those who support our aims.During the podcast we discuss the disconnected theme that appears prevalent in the UK and make comparisons to Europe where wild game is still in strong demand.
