FROM THIS EPISODE

Two stories about the moment when an every day drive becomes a life or death struggle.

A Hole in the Night 19 MIN, 49 SEC

First... a story from the Nocturne podcast. It's the story of one trucker's long drive through the night, and into the abyss. Truck driver, Al Wilkinson was in the cab of truck pulling hundreds of tons worth of cargo down a dark interstate in Oregon, when all of a sudden he was tumbling through space with no idea of what had just happened.

Produced by Vanessa Lowe, an independent radio producer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She and producing partner, Kent Sparling, were finalists in KCRW's 24-Hour Radio Race in 2014. Currently, Vanessa produces Nocturne, a podcast that explores the night, and how thoughts, feelings and behaviors transform in the dark. Nocturne is a member of The Heard, an independent podcast collective.

On the Bridge 8 MIN, 41 SEC

Next... a story about a driver who has just a little bit of time to reflect, as he heads into a crash that could end his last moment on earth. And what he thinks about in those few seconds, is not what he would have expected.

The story is told by Jonathan Hirsch, creator of the Arrvls podcast. Produced by Daniel Gross, an independent producer based in Boston.
