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?


Episode Date
A Chilling Expedition
00:34:45

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.

The Trashman
00:36:18

Deborah Scaling Kiley sat in a rubber dingy in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, reciting the Lord’s

Prayer in a desperate attempt to convince herself she hadn’t gone mad. The water surrounding

the boat had turned a sickly shade of red, as the blood of her devoured crew mate rose to the

surface.
