EPISODE FIFTY FIVE Asking Svalbard

In Asking Svalbard we begin to move beyond generalization about the Arctic. By digging deeper we interrogate a place that might only exist on the fringes of our imaginations-Svalbard, Norway. Located in the Arctic Circle, this archipelago is home to over 2,500 people. Guiding us in this radio expedition is Rolf Stange , author of the top-selling guidebook for this country of the cold shores.
