National Geographic Live Returns
Subscriptions start at just $69!
Over the last two years, the National Geographic Live series has taken us from New Guinea to Mars and back, and from 3 million years in the past to the cusp of the future. This year we’ll go from the very bottom of the globe to the depths of the world’s most isolated cultures, and we want you to come along!
We have three incredible events on the calendar, and you can get a discount and other benefits if you subscribe to all three. You can get a three-show package for as low as $69, and you’ll have all three tickets in hand. That’ll be important because we expect all three presentations to sell out!
with Mike Libecki and Cory Richards

A humorous but gripping firsthand account of this first ascent at the bottom of the world. Few had seen it, and no one had ever set foot on it. Those factors made Bertha’s Tower, a 2,000-foot spire in Antarctica’s remote Wohlthat Range, irresistible (but also nearly inaccessible) to a small team of accomplished climbers led by veteran Mike Libecki.
As reported in National Geographic two years ago, Libecki, climber-photographer Cory Richards, and two colleagues battled extreme cold, furious katabatic winds, and fickle weather in an epic ten-day climb to the summit.
Stranger in a Strange Land
with Jodi Cobb
TUE, MAR 8, 2016 | 7:30 PM
Travel with an inspiring woman as she chronicles her public—and private—path from young photojournalist to world-renowned photographer. Join veteran National Geographic photographer Jodi Cobb on a whirlwind retrospective of a distinguished career that has spanned four decades. Known for breaking through barriers and going undercover to reveal hidden societies, Cobb has captured fascinating glimpses of worlds such as Japan’s secret Geisha culture and the cloistered lives of Saudi Arabian women. Her landmark story “21st Century Slavery” exposed a wide range of human trafficking, generating more reader accolades than any other story up to that point in the Geographic’s history.
The Search for Genghis Khan
with Albert Lin
TUE, MAY 3, 2016 | 7:30 PM
Come alone as one of the modern world’s great explorers uncovers mysteries both ancient and modern. National Geographic’s Albert Lin has pioneered the use of cutting-edge imaging technology—combined with crowdsourcing that harnesses the power of thousands of volunteers—to search for the tomb of Genghis Khan in Mongolia, Mayan sites in Guatemala, and the lost Malaysian jetliner. Lin combines digital technology with old-fashioned, on-the-ground exploration to solve both historical and modern mysteries.
