We love it when we get it, but is it ever really fair? A defense of special treatment, by people who receive it and people who give it.
- Host Ira Glass talks with two sisters, one high-school age, the other younger, about who gets treated better in the family. They all agree the youngest does. Ira then talks to researcher Amanda Kowal about her study showing that different siblings receiving different treatment is the norm in most families, and in fact, there's nothing wrong with it.
