    Catherine Logan: Jet-setting Marine Biologist working on whale sharks, manta rays & more worldwide

    Episode 4 of LIFTING THE LYD hitting your airwaves! Today I'm speaking with marine biologist Catherine Logan. Cat's research work on incredible sea life such as whale sharks and manta rays has taken her all over the world, from the Maldives to Mozambique to Indonesia and beyond. Brought up in Oman, she’s since lived and worked in 7 countries and shows no signs of stopping.

    Disclaimer - this was recorded pre-Corona, so her travel plans changed somewhat... she's currently on lock down staying safe in Australia, but will be back travelling very soon hopefully! Hope you enjoy!

The Ultimate Balance of Learning, Laughing and Curiosity

This podcast is so fascinating and entertaining. It isn’t confined to topics, it’s a deep dive into the tales, principles and approaches to a great array of inspiring individuals. Lydia smashes it as a host and creates really dynamic episodes with great tone and honesty. I’d definitely recommend this podcast and I can’t wait for future ones too.
