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?
