Alone At The South Pole

Two men – one American, one Brit – are each attempting to become the first person to cross Antarctica on foot unassisted. New Yorker staff writer David Grann joins us to talk about Henry Worsley, a British special forces officer who gave it a shot in 2015 (spoiler alert: he didn’t succeed). Grann tells the story in his new book, “The White Darkness” (Doubleday).
