We'll visit a local shock trauma center to meet doctors and nurses who work on the fly to save lives. We'll hear from a longtime D.C.-based teacher of improv comedy. And we'll hang out with a musician who's all about experimentation and play. We'll also take a more literal look at the idea of winging it, with stories about creatures that take to the skies.
