Martin Cohen // Polar play, passion projects and PENGUINOLOGY Seize the Yay

    • Society & Culture

Beautiful people, I am finally back from the great white continent and am genuinely speechless. The yay involved with every moment in Antarctica was absolutely indescribable!!! 
Although, as per usual, when I say “there are no words” I follow with a million words so you’ll be getting bombarded with reflections and feelings in due course - I’m sitting down with Ang this week to unload and that will be coming your way very soon. Thank you so much for your patience by the way during the repeated breaks we’ve had this year to allow for travel and chaos and the general rollercoaster now turned polar-coaster of this year! 
To keep you going in the meantime, I was so lucky to interview many of the incredible Intrepid crew and passengers on the Ocean Endeavour during our travels and will compile all the audio eventually - there were so many fascinating pathways that expanded my mind over and over. But I recorded one very special full episode with someone whose story made me tear up and whose passion project I am desperate to share as far and wide as possible. I gravitated towards Martin Cohen immediately because, if anyone on board qualified as the team penguinologist, it’s him (although his expertise is much broader as an overall wildlife biologist - and yes, he’s had drinks with one David Attenborough in his time). But as time went on, I also heard the most heartwarming and heart wrenching story behind the scenes and I hope you are as moved as I was. 
I won’t give you any hints as it’s so much more beautiful told by Martin himself, but I WILL include links below so you can support the beautiful project he’s embarked on that you’ll hear all about. I’m sure many of you will be as passionate as I have become about helping him spread the word and hope the yayborhood can get behind him. Excuse the background noise the ship was pretty loud but it gives you a taste of the adventure.. Ladies and gentleman, Martin Cohen….
