Guest Host: Steve Roberts

In 1974, high-wire artist Philippe Petit did something very daring and very illegal — he rigged a tightrope between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and walked between them. In his new book, he tells how he planned and carried out the stunt. He joins guest host Steve Roberts to talk about his unique perspective on the Twin Towers — a year after they were brought down by terrorists.
