Great production!

I love finding smaller podcasts that are so well put together. This podcast is real quality. My question of “is there a podcast on Shackleton” was answered with “yes, there’s a great podcast about Shackleton!”

Please check the pronunciation of your main characters prior to recording

This is the 2nd podcast among my favorites to mispronounce Roald Amundsen (accent on 1st syllable).
