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.
Among Us is an online multiplayer deduction game from 2018 that became massively popular in 2020.
