Every year, hundreds of swimmers unexpectedly get caught in riptides and must fight strong currents to survive. On this week's A Kind Voice on Sports, Bill Piedra discusses Ryptide, a Kickstarter project that began when Bill was introduced to a high school robotics class by their teacher. Their collaboration resulted in the birth of Ryptide, an innovative combination of a drone and a life preserver delivery system. Tune in to find out about this potential life-saving device, the people behind its creation, and more about Bill. The Call In lines will be open during the live show on Wednesday at 7 pm EST at (347) 850-8907.
