This is a refreshing podcast that gets down to the real and true feelings we all have about our families, the questions we have growing up, the feeling we have always had that something isn't right, those gut feelings you can't speak up about. Well written, beautifully spoken, and meaningful, this podcast is top notch!

Description

Family Secrets. Every family has them. When Dani Shapiro accidentally stumbled upon a massive secret that had been kept from her all her life, she dove headlong into discovering everything she could about how that secret had shaped her reality and her destiny. Then she started talking with other people about their family secrets. Join Dani and her guests as they explore the power of family secrets and the ways in which discovering – and revealing – the truth can liberate us.
