- In this act we hear two stories of people who stumbled upon a place where they instantly and instinctively felt more at home than in their real homes. Stephen Dubner, author of the memoir Turbulent Souls: A Catholic Son's Return to His Jewish Family, talks about an encounter with a Jewish man named Irving that changed his life. Then Hungarian radio producer Anna Lengyl has an interview with two people who simply decided that they had more in common with each other than either had with anyone else. Finding a home where you've never been—it's a lot like falling in love. (23 minutes)
