🙏🏼 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.

So I’m confused, why didn’t they have to wear protective radiation clothing? Like some of those readings looked VERY high if 0.3 is normal

That type of radiation scatters in the air easily, so unless you are super close to them you're relatively safe.

How is it that you wore a mask for a bit inside the house but not outside where the radiation is? Do you not get affected when you're there for a short period of time?

You should look into the Kingdom of Agharta. It is supposedly the hidden city, the original garden of eden some say. Right in the centre of the earth. Travel to one or two of the apparent entrance’s around the world. Even if you can’t get in, its interesting to read about

The blame is on USSR not necessary for the reactor failure but how they hide this as a secret in the first few days from the world They even lie about the level of radiation from the country that are trying to help they lie about the level of radiation so the robot that are use to clean the graphite shut down just after few minutes of operating so they had to use only human to do this and directly cause hundreds maybe thousands of people’s death

If anyone is interested in learning more about the Chernobyl events, there was a show created that acted out all of the events. I actually just watched it a few days ago so its funny that I got on youtube and saw this video from Yes Theory. The show is called Chernobyl. Just look it up on google, not on netflix or hulu
