Ep. 121: Alive - Tragedy and Triumph in the Andes

Ep. 121: Alive - Tragedy and Triumph in the Andes

On October 13, 1972, a chartered Uruguayan Air Force plane carrying 40 passengers, including a local amateur rugby team on its way to an exhibition match in Chile, collided with a mountain and crashed into a glacier, losing both wings and its whole flight crew in the process.

For the mostly young, inexperienced travelers who survived the crash, it was only the beginning of a 10 week fight for survival in the most inhospitable conditions imaginable.

This week, Sean apologizes for his Spanish language pronunciations as he tells the story of starvation and survival that captured the nation's collective imagination in the book (and later movie) Alive.
