The Longest Swim -- The Story

There's a new interview with me running on most NPR stations as of last week. The show is called The Story. The host is Dick Gordon. As is true with most NPR programming, The Story allows some breathing room. I spoke with Dick for some 45 minutes. He was vastly curious, prompted new thoughts from me, and was bold enough to suggest that the Cuba dream is likely "unreachable."

Dick may be the first call when I make it all the way across come summer.

The interview is edited down and posted on The Story site today. The link below.
