    This year’s Iditarod Champion visited Unalaska on Friday. Ryan Redington was a guest lecturer aboard the cruise ship Silver Wind, along with musher Sarah Keefer. They sat down with KUCB’s Carlos Tayag to talk about the iconic sled dog race that his own grandfather co-founded fifty years ago.

    In the mid-1960s, Robert "Tiny" Schasteen embarked on a life-changing adventure when he relocated to Unalaska, Alaska, to work in the thriving world of seafood production. It was within the bustling halls of PanAlaska where Schasteen crossed paths with the love of his life, Calette. Over the next nearly 40-plus years, Unalaska became his cherished home. He was known for his boundless generosity, quick wit, and contagious laughter. His involvement extended to public service and he was elected to Unalaska's City Council.
