Life’s Detours


Sometimes life detours. Even the most organized plans can change and things don’t always happen as we expect. Especially when it comes to family life – a new baby, a marriage, a divorce, falling in love, a death – these are all things that can cause detours in our lives. This time on KTD, we’ve gathered touching, funny, amazing, heartbreaking and uniquely Alaskan stories from those who’ve experienced a detour in their life – a young family whose complicated pregnancy meant relocating to a new city, a novelist who detoured from Mongolia to Alaska, a single mom of three teens in Ohio who moved to a rural Denali homestead for the love of a dog musher and an injured Olympian gets back on track. Those stories and much more!

Join us for this special episode of Kids These Days! when we detour from our usual format and share the stories of our neighbors, friends and fellow Alaskans.
