Podcast: Scribes in Ice and Darkness

This week's podcast comes from our popular Polar issue of Autumn 2018. 'Scribes in Ice and Darkness' was written by Fergus Fleming, a renowned travel writer who has penned several books about polar exploration, including Ninety Degrees North, and Barrow's Boys.

This article looks at the Polar newspapers, the people behind them, and the incredible efforts they went to to publish these papers in simply unimaginable conditions. An engrossing tale of human determination and resilience.


Fergus has also written an introduction to the new book; Ian Fleming - The Notes by John Pearson, which is out now. Read more about it here >
