Pieces of thawing ice are scattered along the beachshore at Punta Hanna, Livingston Island, Antarctica.

Known as the seventh continent, Antarctica is much more than a home to penguins!

Today, we explore the least inhabited continent in the world.

We hear about how climate change impacts wildlife in Antarctica and what life looks like for those who live and work there.

GUESTS:

  • David W. Brown: contributor to the New Yorker and author to the forthcoming book The Outside Cats
  • Matt Jordan: Project Manager for Antarctica New Zealand and board member for the Antarctician Society
  • Claire Christian: Executive Director of ASOC or the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition
  • Talbot Andrews: Assistant Professor with the Department of Political Science, studying climate policy at the University of Connecticut
