On this episode, we’ll meet athletes who are ready to risk their lives to shed pounds quickly, med students who leave their classrooms to sleep in the freezing rain, anti-vaccine citizens marching in Washington, a bird researcher on a crusade against free-roaming house cats, a little boy so sick with food allergies that even a tiny cracker poses a threat, and a woman who’s giving up creating trash for a month – and maybe for life.
