Description

This week, we’re heading to the ends of the earth with legendary explorer, Ernest Shackleton. Responsible for many expeditions to Antartica, Shackleton is known for his incredible leadership even through some of the toughest and most extreme conditions on the planet. This week, we focus on his 1907 Nimrod Expedition to reach the South Pole. What do eating rations look like for a trip to the southernmost tip of the world? How do you plan for two years in the ice and snow? And where do you stash the whiskey?

We look at expedition rations in the early 20th century and what explorers ate before the advent of energy bars and protein powder. We’ll also dig up Shackleton’s secret storage of whiskey, buried for a hundred years under the snow. Just don’t ask us if we want our Scotch served over ice.
