😂😂😂😂😂 - best episode yet. Loved the expression of the Flat Earth frustrations. I struggle with the same questions as to how can anyone truly believe it.

I'm really enjoying this! The background story helps and allows you to connect with him. It's always been a dream for me to live someplace very remote and I love Antartica or places like Greenland or Svarlbard. I recommend it if you like IRL first person stories & if you wonder what it's like to work & live in a remote place. Great Job!
