Jay Ruzesky: Author of "In Antarctica"

Jay Ruzesky's new book In Antarctica: An Amundsen Pilgrimage traces his voyage to the bottom of the world. His journey follows the path of his famous relative, the polar explorer Roald Amundsen. He'll be giving a lecture with a slide show at the Vancouver Maritime Museum on Sunday, June 23 at 2:00 PM. 

He explained to guest host Margaret Gallagher what travelling to Antarctica meant to him. You can hear that conversation after the 8:30 news.
