Kit talks to The Punk Biologist, Lucy Eckersley (she/her) over a classic brew of Yorkshire Tea (& kombucha!), chatting about amine, exploding leeches, living in Nagasaki, amongst other things! A certain 'mini geographer' also makes a cameo appearance! Lucy is a wildlife biologist by training and uses her knowledge to talk to young people interested in careers in veterinary and animal sciences. She is also a presenter and stand up comic, focusing on stories of field work gone wrong!
