Dog Sled Tearjearker

The podcast How To Do Everything is an eclectic mix of stories loosely based around the idea of explaining, well, how to do things. The show most definitely veers from that idea regularly to present a quirky collection of interesting tales, and this is one of them. Starting at about 2:00 is a story about the Iditarod dog race, wherein a man describes reviving one of his sled dogs after it loses consciousness. The story will bring anyone, dog lover or not, to tears. The man isn’t particularly good at storytelling, but the genuine emotion he expresses about the potential loss of his dog is more than enough. Sometimes people who try to hard to tell a story overstep their bounds because of a lack of sincerity — this man is on the opposite end of that spectrum.
