Season 2, Episode 2: Sammy and Sharon


episode notes:

Growing up Sammy, her moms, and her siblings always referred to her sperm donor dad as "The Mystery Gene." There was always an air of mystery about who he was and if she would ever get to know him.

This is the first chapter in a series of stories that will finish out the rest 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 this episode onward, it is important to listen to them in order to get the full story.
