    Lost at Sea

    Many of the real life survival stories told on this podcast involve people in frightful and desperate scenarios, stranded for days and sometimes weeks on end. This particular story went on for far longer. A Chinese sailor by the name of Poon Lim found himself in one of the worst survival scenarios ever recorded when at the height of World War 2, a Nazi U-Boat sunk the merchant ship he was on, the SS Benlomond.

    Lost in Canyon Creek

    On March 31, 2017, Ann Rodgers, age 72, set off from home with her small dog and cat to Phoenix, Arizona, to visit her grandchildren. While driving through the White Mountain Apache Reservation, she became lost and ran out of gas on a deserted stretch of Arizona desert. Ann had a cell phone but no signal. Knowing it was best to stay with her car, she waited out the rest of the day and that night, hoping for someone, anyone, to come along to aid her.

    Alaskan Retreat

    Have you ever dreamt of “getting away from it all?” Off the grid. Moving to a new place away from civilization, in peace and quiet? For many, their idea of being off the grid is similar to how Governor Jesse Ventura lives half the year. When he’s not in his home state of Minnesota, he splits his time at his home in Baja, Mexico an hour away from the nearest stores and neighborhoods.

    Canyon Puppy

    It was the last weekend before the official start to summer in 2010, and Zak Anderegg of Salt Lake City, Utah decided to spend it alone enjoying nature. An explorer of sorts, he made the trek all the way to the other side of his state’s border in Page, Arizona, a nearly 6-hour drive. The destination being a slot canyon; these are narrow canyons created by the water from floods rushing through rocks long ago. There are a number of these breathtaking canyons in the region, and if you’ve never seen them before, a quick Google search of slot canyons in the region of Arizona and Utah is likely to make you eager to book a flight to take in its beauty.

    Many of us are familiar of the Biblical story of Jesus Christ fasting in the desert for 40 days and nights. Could it be possible for a mere mortal replicate this journey and survive?

Pretty Good

Good stories and good narration. I like when there are sound effects that add to the ambiance of the story. More of that would be great. What would put this podcast to five stars would be interviews with the actual people involved where possible. I also enjoy the older stories. Knee up the good work and continue improving!
