Dogsledder Blair Braverman : Fresh Air Braverman says you never ask a musher how many dogs they have, because between puppies, fosters and retirees, you'll never get a straight answer. "The secret" she says, "is to ask, 'How many dogs are you feeding?'" For Braverman, that number right now is 24. Braverman and her racing partner / husband Quince Mountain have a book, 'Dogs on the Trail,' that profiles their team of Alaskan huskies. We talk about the Iditarod race, her dogs' personalities, and her experience on the Discovery reality show 'Naked and Afraid.'

Also, Ken Tucker reviews 'Breaking Point' by Jackson+Sellers.
