Video: How a 1911 South Pole Expedition led to the video game Among Us

It’s fascinating where the winding roads of history can lead you once you start heading down one of its paths. In this video, I journey from the video game Among Us becoming massively popular in 2020, and end up at Norwegian and British explorers racing toward the South Pole in 1911.

I didn’t really get a chance to get into it in the video, but Roald Amundsen was a real badass. After going to the South Pole, Amundsen and 15 other men traveled to the North Pole by airship. He headed a bunch of different expeditions, and even flew rescue missions.

Here’s the script for this video essay, in article form.
