Alaska Public Media’s Tegan Hanlon talks with four-time Iditarod champion Dallas Seavey in February in the dog lot at his Talkeetna-based kennel. Seavey is back in the Iditarod this year after taking three years off following a scandal in 2017’s race, after which the Iditarod said two of Seavey’s dogs had tested positive for a banned pain-reliever, then later cleared him of any wrongdoing.
