This hour, one man who needs to devour as much air as he can and another who's at his best while holding his breath.

Air
by Neil Sandell ( Radiotonic , ABC RN, 2016)
Neil Sandell is a man of a certain age, a man who loves to ride his racing bike. But as he gasps for air while climbing a steep mountain road, he wonders, why is he driving himself so hard? After all, he's living his dream—a life on the Cote d'Azur. Does the answer lie with his cycling hero Jens Voigt, a man on a mountain, or somewhere in his past?

Dark Blue
by Hana Walker-Brown with recording assistant Laerke Soedring Nielsen ( The Lives of Others , Radio Wolfgang, 2016)
Stig Pryds has been free-diving since January 2013 and already within that year, he ranked in the top 10 free-divers worldwide. Stig suffers from a chronic arthritic condition that had left him jobless, divorced and in agony; so heavily medicated, he couldn’t even remember his children. On the brink of suicide, Stig discovered that under the water, he felt no pain.
