061_Lester_and_Bagshawe

Boom!
Two episodes in quick succession.
Weren’t expecting that, were you?
I was too excited about sharing the story of Lester and Bagshawe to wait a month to get this out and so trebled the five buck monthly outlay on the hosting service to service my need to let you know about the two and the dogs.
The most disarmingly charming chapter in Antarctic history.
Enjoy.

060_Antarctica_war_and_its_wake

Many Antarctic veterans served in the First World War. This episode I outline the military service of several of those veterans who will make return appearances in the south.
The Great War also affected the political landscape of Antarctica and that gets some attention, too.

How long’s it been since I published a short episode?
You’ll be halfway through some task or errand and you’ll hear me making the house keeping announcements, but don’t freak out. You haven’t gone blank or nodded out I’m just keeping things in their lane as much as I can. Likely that won’t last long as I can see multiple concurrent expeditions looming and with radio keeping them in touch and influencing outcomes where previously everyone operated in isolation it’s likely that my discrete expedition/episode strategy is going to come to grief.
