Hey all, so in case you didn't see the announcement video, we launched a new scripted podcast last Wednesday called Extremities. It's all about why and how people live in earth's most isolated and extreme settlements.
In season one, we tell the story of Pitcairn Island–a small British territory in the South Pacific with just 50 people. It's 300 miles/500 kilometers away from the nearest other inhabited place, 3000 miles/5000 kilometers away from the nearest city, and 10,000 miles/16,000 kilometers away from its capital city in London. The twist and turns that Pitcairn takes through history and the explanation of why and how Pitcairn still exists today are fascinating, in my biased opinion.
Episode 1 is out now, episode 2 comes out tomorrow, and I'd love it if you'd give it a listen. Extremities is available at the following places:

I hope you enjoy!
Thank you this is very useful for my plans.
God loves you
I wonder why not more people want to become air traffic controllers.
Controllers have a very good salary that can even ovetake a pilot's salary, but without the risk.
As long as you can handle the stress and are fine with shift work, it's a cool job all around I'd say.
Why don't most people know how to use > and < operators?
I know rhis video is a bit old, but I thought you might like to hear that your videos are officially being used as part of curriculum at a major university!
I just had a major bruh moment actually because I've never experienced an instructor use video from a youtube I was already familiar with, but nonetheless she has, and I just thought I'd give you the heads up that your videos are really making a difference and are well crafted enough for people at really big institutions to take notice 🙂
Very complicated job. When we are in an airplane does not seems like the pilot is dealing with all these regulations.
i cant believe i havent seen a comment about the minion meme
How has this not been automated?
Is it pure network analysis?
Air traffic controllers have a very high stress job and are exposed to very high levels of EMF radiation.
Air Traffic Control is not complicated enough to need this video. If they had to they could manage just with Bruce Willis lighting a barrel of oil (like one of his Die Hard films).
They knew summer 2019 was going to be hard. What they didn't know was how easy summer 2020 was going to be. hahaha
I’m still confused
I like pilot job
Did not age well over the next 2 years after posting it. But well made.
What does it take to be one ? What are the requirements . What are the tests
and now imagine flying cars into that.
Wonder how they did during covid
4:36 wrong symbol for "greater" or "above"
They are doing tough task
Bring new information videos 📹
