Episode Description

After the death of his son, Will, in the 2001 airplane crash that took the lives of ten members of the Oklahoma State basketball team survival became a familiar word in Bill Hancock's vocabulary. Even being director of the NCAA The Final Four men's basketball tournament could not shake his despair. And so he decided to return to his roots as an outdoorsman and marathon runner by riding his bicycle across the country on the 2,747-mile journey from the west coast to the east coast became more than a distraction from grief. It became a pilgrimage. Bill’s book “Riding With The Blue Moth” chronicles his ride. Join in to hear wisdom obtained from that heart felt journey.
