I Fell Through the Ice
by Dennis Funk and Gwen Macsai (Re:sound debut, 2016)

Overland
by Nate DiMeo (The Memory Palace, 2016)

Arctic Sound Lost & Found
by Jennifer Kingsley (Radiotonic, ABC RN, 2016)
Radio producer and naturalist Jennifer Kingsley is quite familiar with the area, having traversed some of it in a canoe. On her last trip, she opted for a larger vessel and set out to record the sounds of her environment. She came back with more than she could have imagined.

Frozen Alive
by Peter Frick-Wright & Robbie Carver (Outside Podcast, 2016)
In this episode, the listener endures a series of plausible mishaps on a bitterly cold night: a car accident on a lonely stretch of road, a broken ski binding that foils a backcountry escape, a disorienting tumble in the snow and a slow descent into hypothermia and delirium.

Music in this episode was performed on instruments made from ice by Icemusic (click the link for a video). Icemusic is a project of Norwegian composer Tjere Isungset.

This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk
