Guest host Alex Hollings tells the harrowing story of the Andree Expedition — a small group of explorers that died in 1897 while attempting to be the first men to reach the North Pole. Hollings, a Marine veteran and journalist, offers a scripted account of their story while discussing his unique perspective on heroism. According to Hollings, success isn’t a prerequisite for admiration and respect — heroism is about having the will to try. Heroism, as Hollings points out, has more to do with intent and effort than outcome. A fool can luck into victory, and a hero can fall short of his goals.
