To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Norwegian co-production of Sesame Street, I made this short documentary about the history of Sesam Stasjon. I’m very excited to tell you about Alfa, Bjarne Betjent, Max Mekker, Leonora Dorothea Dahl, O. Tidemann, and Py, who all live and work at a small train station in Norway.
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.

This is a video adaptation of my How Terry Pratchett’s ‘Going Postal’ Champions The Public Postal Service article.
“Going Postal is possibly almost prophetic, you know. It’s about buying businesses, tearing them down. And I think we should remember where we’ve been and how we’ve got here. Because if you don’t know where you’ve been and how you got here, you don’t know where you’re going.”
This is a video adaptation of my The Art of Theodor Kittelsen article.
