I was interviewed by Dick Gordon of American Public Media's "The Story" about my year managing the South Pole Station and the efforts to "Save The Dome". Follow the link below for the complete podcast of the show, which starts with about 15 minutes of a story about the earthquake in Haiti before heading South to the Land of Ice and Snow.
"No sunsets or sun rises. Twenty below zero is the average summer temp. No leaving in the winter, unless it’s an emergency. That’s all in a day’s work for the employees in Antarctica. Jerry Macala did a stint at the South Pole from 2001 to 2002. He says his time there was life changing. Now, he’s trying to save a piece of South Pole history: he’s trying to salvage a giant dome that’s being decommissioned. Dick talks with Jerry about what it’s like to work in Antarctica."
