New favorite podcast
This podcast is so interesting and well done ! Samuel does an amazing job telling the stories of the families.
Love this podcast but I need more I love how family finds family and finding out there background
Fascinating stories and great host
Thanks so much to all the people that shared their stories, including the host. All of the stories are fascinating, and the host is directly involved in a few of them. The host let everyone tell there own stories, but asks questions to keep the stories flowing, and explain the feelings of those directly involved. I found out I was donor conceived from a DNA test, so I like to listen to these types of stories to help me understand how others process their new discoveries from DNA tests. Podcast like these help normalize conversations about some lesser known types of families. I appreciate that this host had a direct connection, making these stories feel like they are being told to educate, not just entertain.
