Interior Alaska can be a forbidding place. Because of its isolation and climate, the region has long attracted people drawn to the challenges and opportunities of a wild, remote place. In this episode of State Of The Re:Union, meet a number of athletes, journalists, scientists, and activists who embody the spirit of Interior Alaska through their grit, determination, and iconoclasm.

Explore what it means to live in a frontier community through the stories of a dog kennel trying to change the culture of sled dog racing, a murder that has long divided the city of Fairbanks, a heated battle over wood burning stoves, and more.
