The Dream is Over

Hosted by

Pete’s always known there was treasure buried in the mountains near El Paso. But knowing there’s treasure and going to get it are two very different things.

Plus, Eddie Hart had been training for years – steadily making his way to the Olympics with laser-sharp focus. But once he got there, one mistake sent the whole dream crashing down around him.

Will McCarthy is a furniture mover and freelance journalist in Central Texas.
