    S2 Ep 4: Luck and Loss

    This episode starts out with a special kid guest star! We interview our Ginger Gent and ask him what it's like to be a kid from a donor, along with some other fun. 

    Then we dig into some heavier topics that brought us to where we are today. We talk about death, abortion, and grief, so this may be a bit triggering for some of our listeners. These difficult moments in our lives that have helped us to form a deeper bond and our family of choice.

    We got here with lots of luck and loss!
