Earl Grey, body armour and preparing for War
Photojournalist Alison Baskerville was serving in the RAF in Iraq when she began documenting the lives of her fellow soldiers. She now independently produces astonishing images from the front line across the world, including Afghanistan, Mali, Israel/Gaza and the Philippines.
In this episode, she tells Olly about the moments on basecamp that embedded journalists never get to see, the best way to pack to prepare yourself for a warzone, and why she needed to leave the armed forces to gain objectivity.
Elsewhere in the episode, Ollie Peart talks Disney pet trends, 'Shakespeak', and the Chris Packham wasp controversy in this week's Zeitgeist; whilst Alix Fox considers the twenty-first century role of the Femidom and a question of cross-dressing in this week's Foxhole.
