On September 2, 2013, Diana Nyad emerged from the water as the first person to successfully swim the 110 miles from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. She was 64 years old. Nyad had attempted the crossing four times before. She joins us to talk about her new memoir, "Find A Way," and overcoming her personal and professional barriers - including a 30-year break from swimming.
