•Monsoon Chocolate (Andrew) - Chocolate is one of the most loved, celebrated, and consumed confections in the country. One local entrepreneur in Tucson is taking it to a whole new level of taste complexity and sophistication, all with an eye on ethical practices and sustainability. This is 'Monsoon Chocolate.' •Scott and Abbie (Gisela) - If you're old enough to remember the Vietnam War protests, yippies, and flower power, then you've probably heard of political and social activist Abbie Hoffman. Well, Abbie Hoffman has a namesake living in Tucson, a semi-misbehaved stray, who is performing her own form of activism by bringing a new source of joy and purpose into one man's life. •Far Afield: The Rifle (Andrew/David) - Independent rock band 'The Rifle' performs their song 'Visitation' on location in Tucson. Their upcoming record 'Honey Den' will be released in January 2020 on Burger Records. •Wildland Firefighter (Tony) - In the west, forest and woodland fires are a fact of life. Today, fire seasons are 78 days longer than they were in the 1970's and on the frontline are dedicated firefighters who are drawn to this dangerous profession to serve, to save lives and protect property. Linda Strader was one those, a 'Wildland Firefighter.'
