Show Me the Way

Hosted by

Stories about people in trouble, who look for help in mystifying places. A 15-year-old boy travels more than 1,000 miles, alone, to seek out his hero, whom he's never met. Jonathan Goldstein and David Rakoff tell the story of a European man with a terrible medical problem, hoping for a cure from a famous American doctor — who only communicates in rhyme.
