This week, Pete and Nancy let us listen in on the story of two runners of the 2015 Boston Marathon.

Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey speak with Erich Manser, a blind accessibility engineer at IBM, and Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” about their experiences running the Boston Marathon together.  They talk about how they got together, the special trust required to run as partners, and what happens when things don’t go quite as planned.
