494: Hit the Road

May 3, 2013
It's spring, so we're opening windows and going places. This week we have stories of people who, for reasons that they can't always explain, feel compelled to get out and go somewhere. Including the story of one man who decides to take a trip from Philadelphia to San Francisco — by foot.
  • Andrew Forsthoefel's story continues. (30 min)

    Andrew produced the radio story with Jay Allison. Thanks to Viki Merrick. An hour-long version of the story and photos from the trip are at Transom.org, a nonprofit website that explains how to record and produce your own stories.
