Radio Expeditions:The Hunt for PT-109

Later today, the National Geographic Society announces the results of an expedition to the Solomon Islands, to look for one of the most famous sunken ships of World War II: PT-109. A dashing, young Jack Kennedy captained the boat, years before he became President Kennedy. For Radio Expeditions, NPR's Neal Conan joined undersea explorer Robert Ballard on the search.
