Host David Boyer has been going to Burning Man since 1996. This time, he's heading back with a mission: to capture the event before it's over or loses all connection to its origins. In this episode, we enter the temporary city and are welcomed by a man in a He-Man™ merkin — the first many of kooks and creatives, activists and artists we'll meet this season.
