Today's episode brings us tales of people seeing their own potential and going for it. Their stories remind us that we each have our own purposes in life and that we can achieve great things if we buckle up and believe in ourselves. (4:21) Charlotte Blake Alston puts a rhythmic spin on the classic folktale of John Henry, where a legendary race between man and machine takes place. Recorded live in The Apple Seed Studio. (20:14) Sam talks about how Queen Esther became the person she, perhaps, was meant to be, and how the story came alive for him the last time he read it. It's today's entry in The Radio Family Journal. (33:08) An original audio drama about a family that travels the world together on dangerous missions. Why? To rescue stolen art pieces, of course. Each member has a particular set of skills that benefits the team, but one member thinks her skills might be better used elsewhere.
