We’re headed deep into North America’s Appalachian Mountains to share stories about ultra-distance running legend Karl Meltzer, a man who considers a 36-mile run a weak day; a southern Appalachian salamander threatened by climate change and habitat loss; the guy who designed the most grueling footrace on the planet; and a Kentucky radio station that connects prisoners with family members.
This story is a part of our Human Condition series. Come along and let us connect you to some of the most peculiar, stirring, extraordinary, and distinctive people in the world.
