SPECIAL: Philippe Petit Interview on the 40th Anniversary of Famous NYC High Wire Walk

Forty years ago today on August 7, 1974 Philippe Petit stepped out onto a high wire suspended between New York City's Twin Towers and captured the attention of America as he tightrope walked for forty-five jaw-dropping minutes. On the 4oth Anniversary of the event we're posting a special previously broadcast interview between Philippe and Jim, in which Philippe discusses that day forty years ago and the preparation that led up to it.
