View descriptionShare

In 2017 Lisa Blair became the first woman to sail solo around Antarctica. Earlier this year she set sail again, determined to become the fastest person ever to complete the journey.
On this episode of Talking Australia we catch up with Lisa as she rounds Cape Horn, her journey's halfway point, ahead of schedule and discover she's involved in all manner of scientific research onboard when she's not battling 10m swells and 50 knot winds. 
This episode of Talking Australia is hosted by Liz Ginis (AG Digital Managing Editor) and produced by Ben Kanthak (Podcast Producer at Australian Geographic)
