In June of 2016, Dion Leonard attempted one of the toughest races in the world—155 miles through the Gobi Desert.

Episode 23: Into the Ice
33:04

The B-15 iceberg in Antarctica was the largest iceberg in recorded history. Explorer Jill Heinerth wanted to see what it looked like from the inside. She assembled a team of the most accomplished divers in the world, and they traveled for 12 days through the rough waters of the Southern Ocean. Attempting to dive into cracks in the iceberg, her life was in very real danger three times. And the third time, she would be saved by an animal so small, so transparent, that you can see its heart beating right through its skin.

Jill Heinerth’s book is Into the Planet.

Episode 22: Prairie Warbler
37:10

When Drew Lanham was a child, he used to lie down in a field and play dead, just so he could get a glimpse of vultures flying over him. He made binoculars out of toilet paper rolls, and wings out of cardboard. He loved birds. But when he went to college, he says "I was trying to live up to the expectations of others who said, ‘you're a black kid who's good at math and science.’” So he studied engineering, and was miserable. And then, one day he heard the call of a Prairie Warbler.

Drew Lanham’s book is The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature

When Kayleigh Davis saw Kyler Bourgeous' profile on a dating app, she liked that he loved the outdoors as much as she did. But what really stood out is that he said he'd survived a bison attack. So, Kayleigh messaged him, and asked to hear the story. And then, something impossible happened.

Episode 20: Roselle and Michael
31:50

Michael Hingson was on the 78th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He says the first indication that something was wrong was the sound of a muffled explosion. Then the building began to tilt, and he felt the floor drop like an elevator. But Michael Hingson didn’t panic because his guide dog, Roselle, was calm.

Michael Hingson's book is Thunder Dog.
