Interview with Jack ‘Strick’ Strickland and Aaron ‘Az’ Gallagher
Getting Back to Basics!
I finally got a chance to hang out with the lads from the North! Strick and Az were invited along for the Bunker Group charter in the Southern Great Barrier Reef along with me and a few others on the Eastern Voyager. This interview was recorded live after a few days diving and I had a ball. In this interview we chat spearing with crocs, blackouts, hunting techniques along with plenty of banter. Listen in!
