511: The Seven Things You're Not Supposed to Talk About

511: The Seven Things You're Not Supposed to Talk About

Nov 8, 2013
Producer Sarah Koenig's mother lives by a set of rules about conversation. She has an actual list of off-limits topics, including how you slept, your period, your health, your diet and more. You don't talk about these things, she says, because nobody cares. This week we try to find stories on these exact topics that will prove her wrong.
  • Chris Garcia and his dad were driving home, listening to oldies, sharing a bag of chips. A totally familiar scene for them. They’d driven this route probably hundreds of time, but something odd was happening in the car, so Chris started recording their conversation on his phone. He tells producer Nancy Updike what happened.

    Chris is a comedian. We first heard him talking about his dad on Marc Maron's WTF podcast (Chris's part starts around at around 30:30). You can find more of his comedy at his website. (10 minutes)FamilyFathers
