Welcome back to the 25th Hour. In the first episode of Fall 2023, we’re reflecting on managing adversity and choosing your own path.

Our hosts, Valerie Patulot and Zack Ladouceur will guide you through six stories of passion and perseverance. You’ll meet people who have made choices that shaped the direction of the rest of their lives and, in come cases, are continuing to change the lives of others.

Viewer discretion is advised for some of these stories. They contain sensitive content and graphic images of wounds.
