Welcome to Season 2, Belieflings! We’re back in the Hole and celebrating the magic of the season by exploring icy mysteries and the hidden history of the north pole.
We begin with mysterious tales of tragedy from enigmatic Antarctica, including the strange disappearance of Carl Disch from Byrd Station at the South Pole. In the second half, we dive into Mercator’s mysterious map of the North Pole, which describes a magical and wondrous place made of vanishing islands, little people, and a magnetic mountain at the center of the north pole.. But was it real???
