289: Go Ask Your Father

May 13, 2005
In this show, sons and daughters get to find out the one thing they've always wanted to know about their father. The answers aren't always what they hope for.
  • When Aric Knuth was a little kid, his dad would leave for six months at a time. He was a merchant marine. And Aric would record cassettes of himself and send them. He'd leave one side blank, for his father to record a response. But he never did, even though Aric asked him to on every tape. Aric talks to host Ira Glass about what it was like to finally ask his dad why. (7 minutes) ChildhoodFathersJobs/Employment
