Andrew Houser

This week, on "Re:sound," we'll turn down the thermostat and usher in stories that gives us the chills. This Sunday you'll hear:

George Frederick Tilton was crew member on the ship the Belvedere, which made regular trips to the arctic to trap and hunt in the late 19th century. When the Belvedere and it's crew found themselves stranded, Tilton set out on a mission to rescue them all.

Arctic Sound Lost & Founds by Jennifer Kingsley (Radiotonic , ABC RN, 2016)

Frozen Alive by Peter Frick-Wright & Robbie Carver (Outside Podcast , 2016)

In this episode, the listener endures a series of plausible mishaps on a bitterly cold night: a car accident on a lonely stretch of road, a broken ski binding that foils a backcountry escape, a disorienting tumble in the snow and a slow descent into hypothermia and delirium.
