The Tabarin mooted, Marr demurred Base E arises on Stonington Island, five nautical miles from the BGLE hut on Barry Island but two hundred yards from the Johnny-come-five-years-ago East Base. Ted Bingham leads the first iteration of the FIDS and sets the tone for subsequent cohorts. Scones, rum, freshies and the sort of treats that make Brits wave…
 
With a hundred meg of storage in my name and a lot of audio snippets with nothing better to do I give you the bits episode. Mind the neck bolts. This episode features the first competition I've run in a long time. As usual it's biased in favour of early listeners who are old and who are me. Voices from the past. Voices I hope will feature in the fu…
 
Penguin sex gets the attention it deserves after Murray Levick deprived the world of his observations due to his prudish Victorian era sensibilities. Professor Lloyd Spencer Davis gives you the good oil on the oily birds getting it on (early birds only get worms). Extended and diminished visibility and lights in the sky at high latitudes receive so…

The War to End All Wars didn't do what it said on the box and political and economic pressures to fascist all over Europe, China and the Pacific led to another protracted period of bloodshed and barbarism. This episode is short and short on Antarctic content but it's important to understand the motives and outcomes of the morass of conflicts we cam…
 
Driven south by the Third Reich's thirst for fat, the Schwabenland (ship version) carries two cool flying boats and a load of fucking nazis to Antarctic shores. No house keeping and no calls to action, this episode, because I hate nazis and writing, recording and editing this episode made me grumpy. Given that I parted brass rags with Quark expedit…
 
I've traveled with Santiago for three austral summers and his humour and humanity have buoyed my moods while his perspectives on the birds we encountered opened my eyes to biological vistas I'd previously not spotted due to my focus on the mud. I only just met John Marsden ten minutes before pressing record but his tales of high latitudes aviation …
 
Lincoln Ellsworth's money returns to Antarctica with new pilots, no meteorologist and Norwegians all but ready to throttle him. Job's a good 'un, though, in spite of the lack of oomph, patience and skill the money bags brought with him. Herbert Hollick-Kenyon nails one of the best put downs in Antarctic history while puffing on his pipe, munching o…
 
Ellsworth's money gets it into its head to be the first to cross Antarctica. Wilkins, Balchen, Braathen and another polar pig get tangled up in his weak sauce Ahab routine. Soundscapes featuring Port Circumcision and the waters just off Two Hummock Island, which I'm sure is the British Hydrographic Office's cleaned up label for a rude sailor name o…

Boom! Two episodes in two days. Take that, incomprehensible download statistics. Let's see me make sense of you now. Byrd returns south to finish... something... something brave and stirring and laudably scientific and humanitarian, no doubt. Prolly work it out in payroll. Or in a post-hoc rationalisation that will remain in publication for half a …
 
Jeff Maynard returns to the dive hut to discuss the non-voyage of the Nautilus and we receive a visitation from the ghost of an Antarctic feline. Then the sustained influence of James Wordie and the efforts of Gino Watkins get some attention to set the scene for further British efforts in the south. Oooh, foreshadowing and ghosts. Woooooooooooo!…
 
Sam Edmonds is good company at high and low latitudes but you'll know that for yourself by the end of the interview, conducted north of Sydney with sulphur crested cockatoo and DeHavilland Canada Beaver accompaniment. Much has been written on high latitudes food but the residues receive less attention. After finding out about Antarctic sewage and s…
 
The world didn't stand still and await the outcomes of Wilkins' and Byrd's efforts with bated breath.

Byrd and Wilkins are done in Antarctica for the 1920s and head north, leaving many loose ends in the snow next to the dog corpses. With the depression changing the playing field it would fall to the primo fund raisers and the independently wealthy to pick those loose ends up in the 1930s but I'll get to that after covering some Australian and Norwe…
