Up on The High Wire: Nik Wallenda’s Grand Canyon Walk

Produced by

Guest host Phoebe Judge speaks to Nik Wallenda, of the famous Flying Wallendas high-wire walking dynasty. He is planning a walk this Sunday across the Grand Canyon on a cable. He says he is delighted that no one is forcing him to tie up to a safety harness, which he says is more dangerous than a free walk.
