Ep.40 - ANTARCTICA for 15 months - Interview with Jason Whiting

Updated: Sep 16, 2020

In this episode, we interview our friend, Jason and ask him all about his experience visiting Antarctica as part of a SANAE overwintering team.

Although we hardly stuck to this list we touched on:

  • Why he went to Antarctica?

  • Daily routine and practical matters like taking a shower.

  • Sharing a confined space for 15 months with the same 9 people.

  • Highs and lows of the experience.

  • Cooking and eating from a limited selection of ingredients for more than a year.

  • Why there are no Polar Bears in Antarctica.

  • What to do to keep yourself entertained.

  • Does it take a certain type of person to do this?
