Description

It’s been said our lives are no more than a string of decisions. Thousands of choices made every single day. Most seemingly inconsequential. While others harness the potential to lead us to dark and unforgiving places. Do our choices control our destiny? Or are we all like the gambler who repeatedly rolls the dice, hoping each time for a smile from Lady Luck?

A Chilling Expedition

For many explorers, it was a race to see which expedition would be the first to chart and reach the Earth’s Magnetic South Pole. A conquest finally accomplished by the Nimrod Expedition in 1909. A member of that team, 26-year-old Sir Douglas Mawson also held that honor and place in history. A few short years later Mawson would lead his own expedition team back to that icy coastline, hoping to conduct scientific research and chart new areas.Deadly Misadventures is ad-free and available exclusively on Wondery Plus.

Woah, where to start?? I guess I'll start with saying I seek out podcasts like this because, like Debra, I have gone through life for the most part alone. When I'd managed to out maneuver the dysfunction of family of origin I thought the rest of life would be easier. I'd find love, create a family that would keep that love going. What I've learned (months shy of 50) is that the life I'm creating is more like a beta version of anything else. Somehow I still married into dysfunction, it was so very covert. To keep it short, I related to Debra. Our tribe is small but strong. We need something to channel in the absence of belonging / family. I'm not religious but respect spiritual principles that have proved themselves throughout time. That said, dysfunctional homes feel like a generational curse and simply out living it is a triumph. Cheers and hats off to your exploration of what it is to be awake and alive.

I am addicted to polar, arctic stories. Shackleton and the like. So I was skeptical that this one would meet my high standards. It EXCEEDED them! A riveting story! A ripping yarn! I loved it!!!! Well done. I can't wait for more!

AMAZING Life Story.She lost her son, John, to a drowning in 2009.So strange considering how good his mother was about water.I believe what happened that day after the boat sank, entailed a lot more details that she tried to forget.She may have carried guilt for something that happened.I do find it hard to swallow that if someone is pouring blood nonstop and it's bringing many sharks, that you would be right beside them .I know you don't want to hear but she would be the first to go, from someone's hand, in order to save someone in place of all 4 getting eaten by sharks.
