Stories about people and places that have come back to life after everything seemed lost.

For hours, the plane circled over the exurbs of Los Angeles to burn off fuel before it attempted an emergency landing. Host Ira Glass talks to Alexandra Jacobs, Zach Mastoon, and Dave Reinitz about what it's like to be on a plane that might not make it back safely. (14 minutes)DeathTravel
