This American Life

Ok, now I feel like a jerk for complaining. Listen to this episode of This American Life if you want to understand why.

I found the prologue, about how "experts" recommended against showing affection to children in the early part of the 20th century, especially interesting. The other two stories are very powerful as well.

I think I feel even better about my decision to stop listening to "experts" after hearing that. I wonder if any of you Baby Boomers will feel differently about your relationships with your parents, in light of this perspective. Interesting...
