🙏🏼 Thank you for making these videos possible through your support of Seek Discomfort

I've been fascinated with Chernobyl since the moment I read about it in history class over 10 years ago. A few months ago I had the opportunity to go explore it after a big snowfall. The stories we heard were both heartbreaking and inspiring. So excited to finally be able to share.

We were all tested for Covid multiple times before filming this episode and no one has showed any symptoms in the months following this trip.

Thank you to:
Nazar Dorosh for the FPV drone shots:

Cory Martin for the cinematography:

Misha for the guidance:

And Yuri Tabach for the facilitation of this trip.

As you can see, we decided to not add any sponsors or plugs on this story so we could focus on the story-telling and visual experience. But making a video of this complexity without sponsor is definitely not easy, the support from Seek Discomfort is largely how we're able to create stories like this one. It took us several months get the edit to this place and a few days of filming. I'm super proud of how the video came out and hope you enjoy it. Watch it on a TV for full experience :) See you next week - Thomas

Thomas is one of my biggest role models for real. He does not mess around, straight up hard work, some insane journalistic work. U can tell he loves what he does by these videos. Most of the time hes smiling and just emerging himself into other people's world. This man truly has his priorities right guiding his life to success.

I'm sure this has been said several times in the comment section, but the Exclusion Zone of Chernobyl is not the most radioactive place on earth, by several times. Ever heard of Radon baths? They are advertised as healthy. All this does is promoting misunderstanding of radiation, a disservice to nuclear power generation in time when low emission sources should be embraced.

Captain Price: I was just a "Leftenant" back then...doing some wetwork. Chernobyl. Christmas for the bad guys. Even a decade later, a lot of them still used it to get their hands on nuclear material. A lot of 'em...including one, Imran Zakhaev. Of course we couldn't just let that happen. Cash for spent fuel rods? That's one hell of a recipe for destruction. It was the first time our government had authorized an assassination order since the Second World War... I was under the command of Captain MacMillan...
