Story49: Richard Beneville

This February, Story49 features Nome local Richard Beneville.

This episode is separated into two acts. In Act 1, Richard recounts his journey from a career on Broadway to working in the AC Stores in Barrow and Nome; in Act 2, we’re in the studio with Richard as he discusses his struggle with alcohol addiction, how Nome has changed in the past twenty years, and the mythology surrounding the Seward Peninsula.
