This episode features the radio premiere of a piece created by independent producer Rich Halten.
It's the story of Hanns Jones, a man who threw himself from the rail of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay in Florida. He describes his fall and how the experience changed him physically and mentally. We also hear from rescue workers, crises line workers, and a website operator, all part of the culture surrounding the bridge.
Rich Halten can be found at SoundRich.
This program was originally broadcast on May 3, 2011.
