“Sir Edmund Hillary said… ‘For scientific discovery, give me Scott. For speed and efficiency of travel, give me Amundson. But when disaster strikes and all hope is gone, get down on your knees and pray for Shackleton.”’


This weekend, The Social Gathering moves into your headphones with its first podcast courtesy of our friend (and total legend) Steve Mason. Over four weeks, Steve will tell the story of Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 expedition to the South Pole.
