Daily episodes during the Iditarod Sled Dog Race take you out on the trail -- into checkpoints, down along the sea ice, and across the finish line in Nome. Hear interviews with mushers, behind the scenes news, and in-depth race analysis you won't find anywhere else. For episodes from past seasons of the Iditapod, visit
