26 & 27 - The Newfoundland Sealing Disaster
This is a different kind of story. I almost dont even want to tell you what it is about because at face value... it doesnt sound very interesting. I get that. But trust us, it is an insane story of epic mistakes and heartbreaking circumstances that will get you on the edge of your seat, screaming on your phone to make the madness stop. (maybe thats a touch dramatic...who knows). The Newfoundland Disaster is a story of a group of 100ish men on a sealing ship in 1914, stuck on the arctic ice in a blizzard, praying to God that one of the many sealing ships surrounding them will find them. Reminiscent of The Donner Party with no cannibalism, it is truly a story that shows the will of a person can be incredible.
