Join us here on Thursday, November 29, between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET to watch Go Ganges!, two friends’ quest to paddle one of the world’s busiest, most polluted, and most holy rivers, from source to sea.

Starting at 8 p.m. ET, the filmmakers will join us to answer your questions in the comments section below.

Television producers and adventure travelers Josh Thomas and J.J. Kelley test their skills on an epic adventure down India’s sacred river, the Ganges. Together they journey from the source glacier of the river in the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal, where it empties into the Indian Ocean. And they do it rather unconventionally—traveling on foot, cycle-rickshaw, rowboat, and anything else that moves. Battling hardships unimaginable to most, the friends test their limits on the planet’s most populated, polluted, and holy river. The adventurers provide a colorful testimony to the distress the river endures, and why it merits reprieve as an irreplaceable emblem. 83 minutes
