As you walk the trail, signs of that crazy gold rush period are evident, but even more impressive is how a century has erased much of the gold rush’s footprint. Host Charles Wohlforth and friends take on the 33-mile trail over five days of hiking.

The Newly-Named ‘Alaska Dispatch News’

The Newly-Named ‘Alaska Dispatch News’

Not very many years ago it was pretty easy to know how the publisher of a newspaper felt about things. All you had to do was look at the editorial page. But when the Anchorage Daily News was acquired by the Alaska Dispatch, it stopped running its own editorials. Now it is changing its name, and the managers of the Alaska Dispatch News will be taking questions from Alaskans across the state.

Join Line One host Prentiss Pemberton and guest clinical psyclologist Dr. Ron Ohlson as they discuss the psychological challenges of overcoming nicotine addiction.
