Hello Alaska! In this episode we bring on a special guest to talk about mushing, dogs and “The Last Great Race on Earth” the Iditarod. There’s a little bit of history, a lot of dogs and one killer seal.

Alaska Dispatch News reporter Suzanna Caldwell joined us this week to talk about mushing. She grew up around sled dogs, has been on the trail and will be covering this year’s race.

The music at the end of the show was kindly provided by Alaska’s Harm, the song is “We Touch and We Forget” and it’s available on the band’s first EP.

Harm and many other Fairbanks-based bands invade Juneau this weekend.
