David Davenport

David Davenport has been hustling his whole life... but what happens when your body becomes physically incapable of hustling? Davenport is a double-lung transplant recipient, and is in the queue for another double lung transplant. In this story, he ruminates on his life, on his work running Transplants for Children, and on how his illness changed how he saw and engaged with the world.

This story was recorded 11.12.19 at Brick as part of Worth Repeating's "Hustle" show.
