🙏🏼 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

I hope you burnt your clothes after you went there because you will still get radiation from the material of your clothes.

A quick search on YT and the internet has many saying it's not, then add that the authorities even allow folks to visit the contaminated areas of Chernobyl. Thus "the most radioactive" is potentially bs clickbait.

It’s amazing to see a visual representation of the Soviet Communism. Like he said, it’s a time capsule. As a student of history, I would love to see it in person.

Ironically, besides the radiation from the reactor plant itself, the closer you are to Chernobyl the less radiation there is because they cleaned the ground so much.

It’s really not as radioactive as people think, the worst of the radiation dissipated or was removed. Staying there for a few days or weeks won’t have any measurable effect on a person as long as they stay in the safer zones.

Good cinematorgraphy except for the drone shots. A steady aerial shot without the 360 and barrel-roll would have been much better. Acrobatics are headache inducing.

The former residents of Pripyat are likely to never return to the town, and they almost certainly will never live there again. It is estimated that the area won't be safe for humans to live for at least 20,000 years.
