It is hard for humans to survive on their own.  They need a tribe.  Challenges and pressures are hard on an individual in a group, but much greater for an individual in isolation. We talk about the ancient tribal human behaviors: loyalty, inter-reliance, cooperation - that flare up in communities during times of turmoil and suffering.  What can we learn from our tribe?  What can we do to help our tribe flourish.

East Coast Executive Producer, Andy Jones-Wilkins and Brian Chontosh sit around the table to talk about the Sebastian Junger book, Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging.  Don met Brian, a decorated and retired Major in the Marine Corp and Navy Cross recipient, international adventure racer last year as they were experiencing the Tahoe 200-mile Endurance Run.
