For our April 20, 2007 rebroadcast (and podcast), we changed the act order slightly, as follows:
- Case One. I'm an Orphan; Don't Tell My Mom.
- Case Two. Tell It to the Void.
- Case Three. Better Left to the Imagination.
- Case Four. Runaway Mom.
- Host Ira Glass talks with Cate, a white woman with a black, adopted, seven-year-old son, Glen. Sometimes Glen threatens that he's going to return to his real family—royalty, in Africa. The only thing is, Glen's not adopted from Africa. He's adopted from Chicago. But this is the way it goes: Even if there are real parents out there somewhere, sometimes it's more comforting for a kid to believe in a fantasy. (3 minutes)
