Boat Radio – Ocean Research Project – Gambia: meeting the Chicken Man of Lamin and heading up the Bintang Creek

Sep 28, 09:48 AM

The latest instalment of Matt’s adventures in West Africa. This week, useless Yanni and brawny Bruno join Matt as he navigates the inland waterways of Gambia, meets the Chicken Man of Lamin and gets absolutely wasted with Big Bo.

Plus, following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Matt talks of Puerto Rico, his experiences sailing the Caribbean and how climate change is affecting the weather. He also gives us a quick lesson in paleotempestology.
