Most pilots try to avoid flying into extreme storms when they can.  But Shawn will meet a man whose job is to fly directly into and through tropical storms and hurricanes as a NOAA hurricane hunter pilot. Who would you call if you had a venomous snake in your bathroom or a raccoon in your attic?  Shawn will introduce us to a wildlife control operator who captures these critters and removes them from homes and properties.  Plus, Shawn will talk with a law student about what it’s like going through law school and working as a summer law clerk serving the low-income population.
