AJ's World Of Dinosaurs - The Adelaide Show Podcast

In this week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, we have a bumper episode run by Steve’s 11yo daughter, AJ Davis.

AJ is a budding palaeontologist, thanks to her own curiosity, nurturing by two teachers (Kaye and Jenny), and inspiration from Professor Flint.

In this episode, AJ interviews Professor Flint, her two teachers from 2018, Phoebe Wood (a 12yo who won the Oliphant Science Prize for her model of a birdlike dinosaur), Evie from the Mary Anning Rocks campaign in the UK, and David Elliott, co-founder of the Age Of Australian Dinosaurs museum in Winton, Queensland.

This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is Kiss A Sailor Gin from KI Spirit via the Maritime Museum.

And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we hear from Professor Flint, of course!
