Judith Mole has released a new podcast. ‘The Big One’ is an interview with Kirsty Cameron who on 13 May 2012 flew a massive straight line flight of 233km to break the UK women’s paragliding record.

The flight is the second longest flight in the UK ever and only the third over 200km long. In this interview with Judith she describes the flight and how to negotiate the extensive airspace she had to cross, as well as providing a lot of good tips for aspiring long distance fliers.
