The Arctic and the Antarctic are privileged locations for observers interested in understanding how our world is shaped by the forces of nature and the workings of history. These areas have inspired countless humans to undertake epic expeditions of discovery and have witnessed both great triumphs and miserable defeats. As a planetary litmus paper it is at the poles we can detect the effects of natural oscillations and human activities on the global ecosystems.
 
Many mistake the idea of Back to Jerusalem as a movement of the Chinese church to evangelize Jerusalem. However, Back to Jerusalem is the goal of the Chinese church to evangelize the unreached peoples from eastern provinces of China, westwards towards Jerusalem. Our organization partners with the church of China to not only evangelize the religiously oppressed areas of Asia, but to also train and send Chinese missionaries into the unreached regions of the globe, including Muslim, Buddhist, a ...
 
Have you ever wondered what kind of people live in the northernmost city on the planet? Are they just explorers, scientists, or lost souls? Yes, and so much more! Each week we battle the ice and cold to take you, the listeners, to the north of the north where with the help of our guests we tackle topics and stories you would not hear anywhere in the south! Join us as we sit down with the folk of Longyearbyen and resolve all the curiosities of life in the Arctic.

With the recent developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments around the world and across many different states in America have taken steps to encourage and even require people to stay home. Pastor Mark Spitsbergen joins Eugene to share his perspective on this issue concerning the church, and why he's been taking flak over the past few days.…
 
David Joannes joins Eugene on the podcast to discuss missions, being a missionary, and working and ministering inside of China. The perception of China varies among different groups of people and even varies within the Christian community. David shares his perception and also discusses the increasing persecution inside of China.…
 
Ema Kuhn is passionate about the Polar Regions. Always fascinated with life and nature, she decided at age 13 to become a biologist and dedicated 18 years to scientific research. Twelve years of her academic career were devoted to studying life in freezing and cold environments. An expert in Antarctic ecosystems, she has published several research …
 
China's aim to declare a special managed area at the ice sheet’s highest point is a test of Antarctic governance. China has become more and more active in Antarctica in recent years – both in research and in the international framework of agreements known as the Antarctic Treaty System that has successfully seen the frozen continent devoted to peac…
 
Deep, dark and mysterious, Lake Vostok is one of the largest subglacial lakes in the world. Once a large surface lake in East Antarctica, Lake Vostok is now buried under more than 3.7 kilometers (2.4 miles) of ice near Russia's Vostok research station. Covered with ice for millennia, cut off from light and contact with the atmosphere, Lake Vostok i…
 
The single biggest mass of ice in the world, containing about 90 percent of the planet's freshwater ice and around 60-70 percent of the total freshwater on earth, covers about 98 percent of the Antarctic continent. But the continent is divided: In East Antarctica, the ice sheet rests on a major landmass, while in West Antarctica the bed can extend …
 
The icy turtle shell of East Antarctica provides the perfect ground for the coldest place to find on Earth. A hundred little pockets of exceptional cold scattered across the highest parts of the ice sheet. The coldest spots were in shallow depressions in the ice, little hollows where the surface isn’t perfectly smooth. That’s probably because cold …
 
Being Antarctica’s largest native purely terrestrial animal, the Antarctic midge (Belgica antarctica) has the smallest genome in the insect kingdom. The holder of two Guinness Book of World Records entries spends more than half its life frozen. A better understanding of how it does survives freezing temperatures of up to -40 °C could have implicati…
 
Given that the coldest ever land temperature was recorded in Antarctica (−89.2°C at Russia’s Vostok Station in 1983), it can be hard to imagine Antarctica as a warm, temperate paradise. But Antarctica hasn’t always been an icy land locked in the grip of a massive ice sheet. In fact, Antarctica was once almost as warm as Melbourne is today. Research…
 
Stricken by surprising, it is again time for perhaps the most wonderful time of the year. But one person is busy these days like never before. And every year we ask each other, where does he live? While every child knows, he lives at the North Pole and popular literature describes Santa's home amid coniferous forests, several places in the Arctic c…
 
While more than 11,000 scientists just officially declared a Global Climate Emergency, the wording has become more aggressive to underline the urgency linked to it. Respectable major media outlets like The Guardian and the New York Times have not only adopted this new wording, referring to a climate crisis and global heating rather than climate cha…
 
While the Grand Canyon is largely considered to be the planets biggest natural rift, scientists discovered another trench on Antarctica that could rival one of America's mightiest natural features. The unnamed canyon was found during a 2010 expedition and extends 100 kilometres, is more than 9 kilometres wide and reaches depths of more than 1,6 kil…
 
Rarely before has a statesman such clear words about the climate crisis found, as John Kerry at the award ceremony of the Arctic Circle Award 2019. As a laudator Iceland's former president Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson spoke of an urgent need for an open, democratic, accountable dialogue , where the young activist has the right to ask questions and presen…
 
Eugene is joined by a special BTJ Partner who runs an amazing crisis center where at-risk women who are pregnant can come for support to keep their babies instead of aborting them. These women are also creating handmade Christmas items that BTJ is excited to make available to you this Christmas season! Listen to learn more and visit our website to …
 
The largest research expedition to the Arctic of all times and one of humanity’s greatest efforts to understand how melting at the pole will affect the rest of the planet has been 5 years in the planning and is being lead by the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI). The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) aims …
 
Out of a lack of global awareness and, as a result, a lack of effective governance, former Icelandic president Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson initiated in 2013 the open Arctic Circle Assembly, bringing together decision-makers from politics, economy, science, education, and society. This year we had a chance to meet a few participants, so we decided to sta…
