Guest: Kurt Dickson, MD, Emergency Medicine Doctor, Banner Thunderbird Medical Center Some people, when they turn 50, save up some money and splurge on a nice trip to Europe. BYU alum Kurt Dickson spent money, instead, on a very cold swim across the English Channel with some jellyfish, but no sharks, because the water's too cold for sharks. Kurt Dickson's chilly 21-mile channel swim took a bit over 10 hours.
