'The kayak gives this incredible perspective on the world, where you are really embedded in the worlds of the species, you're surrounded by other animals, they don't respond to you in the way that they respond to humans on foot because obviously they are so much more skilled in and on the water than you are.' Writer and historian David Gange talks to Jessica about his book The Frayed Atlantic Edge: A Historian’s Journey from Shetland to the Channel, describing his adventures by kayak, his encounters with wildlife, the importance of poets to history, and why he was discouraged from narrating his own audiobook. David's book recommendations for the Audiobook Listening Challenge: Floating Coast: An Environmental History of the Bering Strait by Bathsheba Demuth Braiding Sweet Grass by Robin Wall Kimmerer Fathoms: The World in the Whale by Rebecca Giggs Moder Dy/ Mother Wave by Roseanne Watt
