Ep 379: Christina Soontornvat & the “Thirteen Lives” Movie

Back in June and July of 2018, the entire world was transfixed with the drama playing out deep within the flooded chambers of the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai Province in northern Thailand. Twelve young teens and their soccer coach found themselves trapped over two miles deep and half a mile down. Legendary director Ron Howard’s newest film “Thirteen Lives” moves us to relive those unforgettable challenges, obstacles, sacrifices, and acts of heroism. And award-winning author Christina Soontornvat (“All Thirteen”) adds remarkable detail and dynamism to this rivetting story.
