While theft is rare in circumstances where most needs and wants are catered to by management other crimes occur in Antarctica with surprisingly monotonous regularity, given the small numbers of people in the far south at any given moment. Other podcasts have dedicated episodes to the matter but that doesn't mean I shouldn't cover it too, so I did. The Australian Antarctic Division recently announced it was decreasing alcohol allowances and banning home-brew. In part the change was geared to make women feel safer on base. It doesn't deal with the root cause of that problem but if it helps bring about positive change then that's something. We already tried doing nothing and it didn't work.
