Hear what challenges are overcome and insights gained in the production of documentaries that touch the displacement of Indigenous people and the devastation of the environment; the bond that four women have between their dogs and the world of sled-dog racing;  the lasting legacy that Jewish pioneers left in the American West; and  who gets to decide when we die?
