10: The Milkshake Club (with Susan)

You may have heard this story: a person finds out they're donor conceived through a DNA test, and they go to confront their parents and demand an explanation. But what if that person went to their parents, and their parents were also surprised to discover their child was donor conceived? How does that even happen? For more information on Dr. Pancoast's experiment and the historical ethical issues with artificial insemination, check out this article from The Atlantic: "The First Artificial Insemination Was an Ethical Nightmare"//If you have a story about donor conception or nontraditional families that you would like to share, or if you have any questions, contact the show through email at diblingpodcast@gmail.com or on Twitter @diblingpodcast.
