Why are we drawn to stories of escape? How do we know when we've escaped or when we?ve been captured? On this week?s show, we hear stories by the winners of our first Stanford Storytelling contest, all of which explore the theme of narrow escapes. You?ll hear a memoir outlining the dangers of professional panty sniffing, a memoir about a maybe catastrophic encounter with abandoned tires, and a short story recalling a scary moment in Stanford's past.
