NewsHour’s Fascinating Top Notch Journalism in Podcast Format!

So interesting! Fantastic combination of adventure story, journalism and documentary. I loved the Last Continent video series on the NewsHour broadcast about Antarctica (a place I didn’t know much about) and this was a great companion piece. Gave a really unique view into the experience of the reporter and producers’ experience — what they see and feel while they’re experiencing a vast unknown territory and learning about what that territory is telling us about climate change. Definitely keep such podcast companions coming. I’ll be listening! PS - always include penguins, too. :)

The message is misleading.

The production was great but the message was sugar coated - we may lose a few species but we’ll adapt. That’s not the big picture as I see it.

What a journey

Take your ears to the end of the world. I learned a lot on this podcast. Hard to imagine the scale of Antarctica, but the team here did a great job of breaking it down.
