The Adventure Podcast Episode 9: The Logistics of Skiing to the North and South Pole

The latest episode of The Adventure Podcast is now live and available to download in all of the usual places, including iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher. I’ve also embodied the episode below for those who prefer to listen on directly from their computers. This week we return to our usual format after taking a week off for some travel and following a pair of shorter episodes that focused only on the latest adventure news.

The main topic of discussion this week is the differences between skiing to the North and South Pole. On paper, the two expeditions seem very similar, but in reality they are about as far apart as the poles themselves. We delve deep into these differences as we discuss things like climate change, “negative drift,” and being stalked by polar bears. Of course, we also share some thoughts on gear items we’re currently using, and talk about the latest stories from the world outdoor exploration and adventure.

As always, thanks for listening and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. If you have any feedback or would like to send us a question, don’t hesitate to reach out by email either.
