I was already a Wendover/HAI fan and this podcast has hooked just like the the YouTube channels. I have been so intrigued by Svalbard for a while and now, after season 2, I want to see it even more than before. I can't wait to listen to season 3. Thanks for providing great content Sam!

Really good. Got super interesting toward the last few episodes. Maybe you should have put a teaser about stuff to come in the pilot. I think mentions of pedophilia would cut through expectations lol
