The Arctic and the Antarctic are privileged locations for observers interested in understanding how our world is shaped by the forces of nature and the workings of history. These areas have inspired countless humans to undertake epic expeditions of discovery and have witnessed both great triumphs and miserable defeats. As a planetary litmus paper it is at the poles we can detect the effects of natural oscillations and human activities on the global ecosystems.

Chris and Mario are the best!

Hey, if you love to learn about the Arctic, or about climate, or weather, or ocean currents, or drinks that are served in a Russian coal miners' Pub in Barentsburg on Spitsbergen-- here it is!! If you love curious German photographers, or Italian ship captain/naturalists who speak English with a Norwegian accent-- this is it!! I am now binge listening for the second time, and have already planned my next trip to Svalbard, up to 80 degrees North latitude. If you grew up reading and dreaming of Nansen, Byrd, Amundsen and Scott, this is the podcast that will delight you. The only bad thing is that sometimes they have to pause because they are on adventures that make them (even more) inaccessible than usual. But that's life in the Arctic...

Great topic!

I enjoy all of these episodes as the Arctic is a place that I am definitely considering visiting in the near future. However I am going to Antarctica this December and hope to hear some information about that as well, as that is my immediate need and it seems to be very much geared toward the Arctic.....but very interesting nevertheless.

Wonderful and Informative!

These two gentlemen are wonderful to listen to. I never knew there was so much I didn't know about the ant/arctic. Definitely recommend this one if you have a curious mind! I look forward to many more shows from you guys! Great work! Biz zur nächsten Folge!
