S04 Episode 4 Extra: Coexistentialism / by Unexplained Podcast


In last week's episode, Always Already, we journeyed deep into the Amazonian rainforest with the Mayoruna tribe and acclaimed photojournalist Loren McIntyre, who hoped to be the first person to photograph them.

To some, McIntyre's ambition to locate the Mayoruna despite their desire to avoid all contact with outsiders speaks to a bygone age of colonial self-importance. 

In this episode we look at the perils of such contact, cultural erasure and what happened when missionary John Allen Chau attempted to reach the islanders of North Sentinel Island in November 2018.
