Families can be full of drama! From getting a phone call that your grandmother assaulted someone at the nursing home, to hatching several unrealistic plans to run away from your parents, there is still that special something that keeps kin together. In this very special episode, we hear stories about forgetfulness, fights, and forgiveness. Plus Katharine’s (almost) 5 year old nephew joins us at the end to provide riveting commentary. He has a lot to say about lobsters.
