Tagging Along for the World's Largest Scavenger Hunt

Every May the world's largest scavenger hunt takes place at the University of Chicago. Undergrads, and even some alumni embark on a four-day journey, gathering, constructing and performing hundreds of items. Matthew Long-Middleton has this audio postcard from the event.
