Season 2, Episode 8: Gerald
When Gerald travelled to India to study yoga, he discovered the books of George Gurdjieff and they changed his life. Gerald takes us through many other life changing moments, including the discovery of his biological children that came about after a few years of donating sperm to a women's clinic in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
This is the seventh chapter of a big story that takes up most of Rashomon Season 2. You will hear multiple families telling every side of multiple stories, all having to do with the early days of sperm banks and how it effected the lives of the families that used them. From Season 2, Episode 2 onward, it is important to listen to them in order to get the full story.
