- Two Brothers, the Bering Sea, and One of the World's Deadliest Jobs
- By: Andy Hillstrand, Johnathan Hillstrand, Malcolm MacPherson
- Narrated by: William Dufris
- Length: 7 hrs and 19 mins
The Time Bandit is the fishing vessel that Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand use to hook the "deadliest catch", Alaskan king crabs and opilio crabs, in the Bering Sea, a dangerous body of water that can steal years from a fisherman's life. In pursuit of their daily catch, the brothers brave ice floes and heaving 60-foot waves, gusting winds of 80 miles per hour, unwieldy and unpredictable half-ton steel crab traps, and an injury rate of almost 100-percent.
There are fewer than 400 fishermen of this kind in the U.S., and early death is a common fate. But the Hillstrand brothers are drawn to the drama and adventure of life on the high seas - this is their world.
Much Better Then I Had Expected
