Episode 119: Lost in the Woods (with Philip Bennett)


Lost in the Woods. Yes, like The Easy Chair theme song, guest writer Philip Bennett was lost in the woods, specifically the Adirondacks, though not, as it turned out, for long. This is the story of the afternoon that Philip, a lifelong hiker, got lost in the wilderness without cell phone reception, a map, or a clearly marked trail, but with a potentially catastrophic heart condition. A few hours spent facing one’s mortality changes a person in unexpected ways. Philip’s unintended adventure holds a host of life-affirming insights. I guarantee Philip’s unique voice (gentle, witty, wry) will draw you in and make you think about what it really means to be alive, and human.
