Episode One - The First Time
Here is the first episode!
In an interview with us, climate scientist Thomas Rackow talks about his duties as a YOPP modelling lecturer for the MOSAiC school aboard the Russian research icebreaker Akademik Fedorov that accompanied Polarstern on her transit into the central Arctic sea ice in September and October 2019.
It's all about first times: not only Rabe Socke went to the Arctic for the first time, but also Thomas had his first glimpse of northern lights, and got the polar virus. How is it to put your first step on Arctic sea ice and at the same time becoming a VIP by carrying a walkie-talkie around? Thanks to T-Racks, everyone on board Akademik Fedorov is able now to predict where the sea ice goes and sing along with Thomas on his ukulele.

The IcePod is the podcast about polar science and the people. We’ll talk to scientists who went on board Polarstern, the German research icebreaker, for the biggest research expedition in the Arctic. The IcePod is the official podcast of the Year of Polar Prediction initiative to improve weather and sea-ice forecast in the Arctic and Antarctic.
