In this episode Matt Crawford speaks to author Christina Thompson about her book Sea People: The Puzzle of Polynesia. This is an amazing book about how the Polynesians managed to navigate the Pacific without instruments, maps or even having a written language. Colonizing the remotest islands in the Pacific until the arrival of Europeans explorers they were the only people to have ever lived there. A story that is fun to read and needs to be told this is one of those lessons we all should have learned in school. Can't recommend enough!
