"Today we're gonna be exploring stepping into the unknown head to talk about it. I am joined by debbie. Millman that hosted one of our first podcasts. Ever or one of the first time ever. Hi debbie hang lease. Great ac- air. It's great to see you If you haven't tuned in before debbie's cast is called design matters. And i have been listening while i go on runs and Really enjoy your conversation. Thank you thank you so much. We'll to frame this talk Why don't we start by talking. About how stepping into the unknown applies in your own life in in your own career. Well i was really influenced. Several years ago. I interviewed the great writer danny shapiro and we were talking after the interview. She came into my office at the school of visual arts and saw that i had stacked on my task. Three books had just come out a barrel confidence. I i really had felt at the time. That confidence is by holy grail. But this is what. I was looking for to find my whole life if i could find the confidence to step into any without fear that that would be like my life likely be made and she and i started talking about that and she said oh i think. Confidence is really overrated. What what like ed explodes. And i pressed her for more information. And she said that she felt the confidence overrated that most people that just head oodles oodles of confidence were jerky thought was more important than confidence was actually courage and that courage to step into that unknown was was far more important to being able to reach any kind of call in so it set me on a pass of a research to really find our What confidence actually meant. What does it mean to have. What have you have you get confidence. You're not good with supermarket in like polls confidence shelves

"I found it. So interesting. It really appealed to him. I could understand that especially being at home and write like you took your a mix of so many things. I know all these documents. So intoxicating it was really interesting and I got really wrapped up in it. Yeah, but you know I birth Think you know had had something happen to me. Like what happened to Danny Shapiro that she wrote about in her book where she made that Discovery. I mean you just kind of You're kind of taking a roll of the dice and then like in terms of what you find out and then sometimes when people find something out, they can't resist pursuing something else and and and you know that getting in contact with that person who might hearing from you might be a surprise and you know, yeah, I get that you get off his life or whatever it is. But I mean Anonymous sperm donors who made Their donation on condition of anonymity for exam right that blown out of the water five, ten fifteen twenty years later. He example, yeah, you know, you know, it just it's a hard you notice that I'm hesitating with this in a way like it was clearly an easier decision for me to stop posting about one topic. We're off ancestry.com from yeah. Yeah, that's interesting. I mean, here's the thing. I mean, I guess what if you're not like thinking you're going to go track down. People do you still think that it causes a problem or do you think it's more the like before when people act on what they find there was a couple of years ago where a woman had gotten off. She conceived her daughter through a Spur, you know through a cryogenics, you know, like a sperm sperm donor and she then apparently home with parents permission. You can get your kid. I don't think this was ancestry. I think it was 23andMe the kid minor child can submit a sample so she submitted a sample for her daughter and got her daughter's DNA profile and then located some you know, relative of the de biological fathers is on contact with that person and then the facility got in touch with her with a cease-and-desist. She said you now cannot have access to any more of this Law Firm for any future children that you might want to have and she'd went to give her daughter siblings, but then the facility withdrew permission Club Violated the terms and conditions and just stares classic classic in this goes for.

"When Danny Shapiro was a little girl she used to stare into the mirror looking for something but she wasn't sure what all she knew was that her reflection didn't make sense Shapiro didn't look like the rest of her family who were eastern European Ashkenazi Jews and she wasn't adopted I was very fair very blonde blue eyed pale skinned child with you know sort of porcelain skin and very western European features you know just many years later I remember being on vacation in Amsterdam and walking into shops there and people just are speaking to me and gosh as if I was Dutch I'd very much have that kind of physicality my mother had dark hair and dark eyes my father had sort of kind of sandy colored hair and hazel eyes and very quite dark complected olive colored skin though turned very very dark in the summer not you know it's interesting because when I look back now at photographs of the two of us it really makes no sense that that father could be the biological father of that child when I look at the two of us now Shapiro is a best selling author of five novels in three memoirs all having to do with family secrets however when she wrote those books she didn't yet understand why the theme felt so important to her that's all different now and in her latest book inheritance a memoir of genealogy paternity and love Shapiro explains how she discovered it it all started when her husband order to direct to consumer genetic tests to discover his ancestry at the time he said Hey Han why don't you do it too so Shapiro casually spit into a vile put the sample in the mail and forgot about a few weeks later the results arrived and rocked her world completely off center I discovered in very short order that might. who raised me wasn't my biological father and I realized that I had certain clues and I it very quickly began to do research and try to understand what happened and how that could possibly have been the case and I discovered that my parents who are both deceased at this point as I couldn't go to ask them that they had trouble conceiving me and they had gone to get help in the early nineteen sixties in the form of an institute that used donor sperm and that my biological father was in fact a sperm donor who had been a medical student at the time unlike most people born as the result of sperm donation Shapiro easily tracked down her biological father who turned out to be a retired physician and bioethicist she even found a YouTube video of him teaching a lecture which Shapiro says while is and will remain the most surreal experience of her life it wasn't like I was dissecting his face and thinking oh my goodness I have his chin or I have his eyes or I have his coloring or anything like that the feeling actually was. he's moving his hands the way that I do she is gesturing the way that I too he's even running this lecturing Q. NA which is something that I do very often in my work he's running at the same way that I do it was seen the familiar which I think when we're in biological families we see the familiar all the time and we just I do notice it or don't notice it or take it for granted and if we're in non biological families but we know that if we know that were adopted for instance then we are aware of the absence of that but we know that there is that absence we know why I because I was raised by non biological father but I didn't know that I never had that sense of the familiar but I didn't know why I didn't have it I didn't even know what to call that feeling it just was something didn't add up that's what I was looking for in my face in the mirror and the answer to that question was abundantly clear when I first saw that video of my biological father research shows that genetics account for much more than just our physical looks and attributes genetics affect our behaviors are likes and dislikes even our personalities Jeanne influenced much more than just eye color or whether we can curl our town they certainly impact personality you can find genes linked to just about any personality trait you like in the scientific literature just be mindful that these are predisposition change usually control twenty to fifty percent of various personality traits because these behaviors are very complex this bill Sullivan professor of pharmacology and toxicology at the Indiana University school of medicine and author of pleased to meet me GM's germs and the curious forces that make us who we are one of the things I found in the research for this book is a lot of the behaviors that green perceived to be voluntary. are influenced by what I call him forces finger going on underneath the hood that were not necessarily conscious of that trickle into our decision making what we perceive to be human choices are strongly influenced by things that are going on in our biology that we might not necessarily be aware of might not be aware was an understatement for Shapiro because of the secrecy and anonymity surrounding sperm donation at the time she was conceived her personality her medical history perhaps even life decisions we're all influenced by an unseen hand she felt foreign to her family and even to herself without knowing why I write in the book I feel like alternately I come from three people there's my mother who's my biological mother my dad who raised me who has a great deal to do with forming me as a human being it's not meaningless you know the sense of constitution and nature that I I never really quite understood in myself also when I was not just searching for my true face in the mirror but also a sense of myself as like why am I the way I am why do I have a certain kind of steadiness for example that neither of my parents had or why in a something constitutionally that I just never knew where it came from when I met my biological father I really had this feeling of that's where it comes from I get it now so it's a very unusual will lessen usual these days than ever but unusual realization to come to but it's it's like all the pieces of the puzzle I have them all now but beyond the personal level Sullivan says there are societal ramifications to understanding our genetic makeup for example certain genes can predispose a person to criminal behavior I just kind of race with the opinion that. people make their own choices and if you're a violent criminal that's on you so one of the striking things that I found in the research is that it's a lot more complicated than that we're not trying to dismiss that or give anybody a get out of jail free card but there are genes that can be responsible or predispose people to more aggressive or violent behavior I've come around to believing that one hundred percent I truly believe if we get to the bottom and understand the biology that it'd be writing all of our behaviors we will be in a much better position to treat some of the conditions that are harmful to either individuals or society at large. that just underscores the some of the power that genetics really does have over our personality traits and behavior Shapiro believes that when it comes to sperm donations the official policy of anonymity and the familial one of secrecy are not only on ethical but in this day and age of virtually impossible for example for her entire life Shapiro confidently gave her medical history to her doctors that turned out to be completely false but it isn't just the policy of anonymity that Shapiro finds on ethical a donor can produce unlimited numbers of offspring the sky's the limit in terms of numbers and still a culture of secrecy around a lot of this and parents who have been disclosed to their kids you have a really kind of scary situation with all sorts of very disturbing possibility is disturbing possibilities like a biological siblings or first cousins marrying one another without even realizing it Shapiro believes that Crile banks perpetuate the myth of anonymity to encourage sperm donation without man having to meet or be contacted by their eventual progeny but even without policies that promote transparency Shapiro says the ubiquity of direct to consumer genetic testing makes donor anonymity of thing of the past tests are among the most popular gifts during the holidays and millions of kids have been sold plus registries are popping up on the internet where people conceived through sperm donation can find half siblings by posting the results of their genetic tests there's a common misperception that I'm hearing a lot of which is people say to me well I'm not gonna have my DNA testing because I wouldn't want anybody ever be able to find me or identify me and I say to them it doesn't matter whether you have your DNA tested on. not in the case of my biological father it was a nephew of his who showed up as a first cousin of mine I'm like who is this it could be a grandchild it could be a sibling it could be a third second first cousin it could be a nephew or niece everyone because of the ubiquity of this testing everyone is discoverable and as a consequence lots of families have found themselves up sat and torn apart every week thousands of people around covering family secrets father's discover a son or daughter isn't his biological offspring siblings discover they are fully related to one another or that they have half siblings that they never knew about or that they aren't related to one of their parents the revelations go on and on the good news I would say is that I feel like a tremendous number of really brilliant minds are really turning themselves to this because there are you know hundreds of thousands of people a year right now making these kinds of discoveries and they need support and help in being able to sort of navigate this Brave New World that we find ourselves in and again I really do believe that over time there's gonna be a moment ten twenty years from now where the idea that they were ever secrets like this that were capped at the idea of anonymity was ever a good idea when it comes to biological parentage all that is going to seem crazy researchers have been duking it out for years over whether nurture or nature is more important when it comes to human behavior as it turns out they may be equal Shapiro says she'll always love the father who raised her and think of him as her dad but her biological father gave her important attributes as well knowing what they are his help Shapiro makes sense of who she is and those soul of an approach. his genetics from a less personal aspect he also sees the value of uncovering the hidden forces that steer us and once they're exposed we get a greater appreciation for why we're doing what we're doing and it's not necessarily because we're thinking about it carefully it's a very often more or less an impulse toward instinctual dried and we need to take a step back shake up our brain from its slumber and say Hey look here's what's really going on let's be a little more patient and understanding both with our own issues as well as the issues that other people have and just sit down and calmly sort this out utilizing evidence as our guide Danny Shapiro's book inheritance and bill Sullivan's book pleased to meet me are available now

"And afternoons during the drive I know sometimes it rings a bell wow that's a great song well I got the entire library a bumper music but the whole all of the music is available so check it out with the I heart radio apple you downloaded also check out the podcast page of that app Danny Shapiro joins us now she produces the podcast family secrets which Danny as I understand it started and quite by accident for you in a way yeah so about three and a half years ago and made the really shocking discovery of a family secret of my own and I it was after doing a DNA test that I did really very casually as so many of us do and discovered that my dad who raised me had not been my biological father and I in sort of my my shock and. and trying to begin to uncover what really happened in literally the story of how I came to be I turned to writing which is what I always do and I wrote a book called inheritance that is a memoir about my discovery and about everything that I learned and when inheritance was about to come out last year. people started telling me their stories of their family secrets I think there's something about telling someone the story of a family secret of yours that kind of creates an intimacy or levels level the playing field in a way and so and so many people do you have family secrets of their own some big some small sum kept in the name of love you know all sorts of reasons but I started hearing these stories and I thought wouldn't it be amazing to be able to tell the stories and share the stories in a podcast and that's how family secrets came to be it is now in season two family secrets with Danny Shapiro I guess this thing has grown to the point where you have a lot more content than you anticipated. well finding it amazing stories and brave and remarkable people willing to tell them has been surprisingly you know the easy part there is not one person that I've asked. they'd be interested in being my guesstimate I cast who said no. they also tended to approach people who were ready to you know ready to really unpack the story both of the secret itself and of the impact and the meaning of a secret so the first season has ten episodes ten different stories ten different casts and all different kinds of secrets and then the second seat season which launched a few weeks ago I think the point episode dropped tomorrow is also just brand new one of the things that one of the reasons I think that this podcast is. is successful in finding so many listeners is that. every family secret is unique and different even if they seem on the surface of things to be. in the same general arena every one of them there's as individual if no flakes. Danny Shapiro who is the author and put the producer of podcasts the family secrets and it's available in the I heart media on the I heart radio app on the podcast channel we're in season two of this and then can you give us a little preview of of what some of the stories will be this season. absolutely so in the first couple of episodes that have already dropped there is a couple who choose not to tell their. teenage daughters that that their mom the you know the wife is terminally ill they they they don't they don't share they decide to keep that from their children because they want their children to have you know quote unquote normal life a very much a secret that is very costly and and and kept in the name of love and protection and you know really asks listener you know what do you think in a way what would you do this and what do you think about this and another is story actually it's coming up zero is a woman who grew up in Detroit in the nineteen sixties and seventies and her mother ran numbers you know that the was a numbers runner which was you know essentially this illegal activity back then and was able to because what he did afford her family a you know a a good life was able to you know buy a home and but yet they were always living you know just by a thread and they could never be the word of one mom I did for a living another story is a man who gay and and always knew it never acted upon it and grew up in the south and in a traditional family into felt that he could not be who he really was inside so he married and had a couple of children and it wasn't until his girl for teenagers and you know he and his wife have been married for quite a long time that is the truth and for the secret that he had kept about himself just couldn't be contained any longer because I think that that's one of the things that secrets to is that they don't just go away you know they they. a fall asleep they may kind of hide in corners they may slumber for years but eventually anything that hasn't been spoken and has been hidden really kind of things on the walls and wants to come out Danny Shapiro producer of the podcast family secrets newsradio.

"What will you create today? Our genes have a story to tell. But it may not be the story. We want to hear a few years ago on a lark the novelist and memoirs Danny Shapiro had her DNA, analyzed by genealogy service. One of the things she learned her father was not her biological father, Danny discovered she simply wasn't who she thought she was thus began her quest to uncover the secrets of her family and to reimagined her own story. You can read all about it in her new book. Inheritance? A memoir of Kenya. Legiti paternity and love Danny Shapiro. Welcome back to design matters. Thanks, debbie. It is so great to be here. Danny in preparing for our interview today. I not only read your remarkable new book. I also reread the transcript of our previous interview in twenty fourteen and I was struck by the first. First question. I asked you in that interview. I wanted to know if it was true that when you were two years old you were the Kodak Christmas poster child. And of course, you told me you were and at the time the notion of a little orthodox Jewish girl. Appearing in a Christmas ad seemed well unusual, and it was and it wasn't as we'll discuss. But I also asked you about something you had written in nineteen ninety eight in your memoir. Slow motion. You stated this I spent my early life surrounded by silence thinking, my thoughts. Dreaming my dreams? Inventing a self at of thin air. I had no one to reflect this back to me. And Danny in some ways, you start inheritance with this version of your younger self and I'm wondering. If you could read several excerpts over the course of this interview today, but if you could start with a portion of the introduction, of course, amazing to hear that quote from slow-motion, which is kind of amazing, just amazing amazing. When I was a girl I would sneak down the hall late at night. Once my parents were asleep. I would lock myself in the bathroom climb on the formica counter and get as close as possible to the mirror until I was nose to nose with my own reflection. This wasn't an exercise in the simple self absorption of childhood. The stakes felt high who knows how long I kneeled. They're staring into my own is I was looking for something I couldn't possibly have articulated. But I always knew it when I saw it. If I waited long enough, my face would begin to morph, I was eight ten thirteen cheeks is chin and forehead. My features softened and shape shifted until Finally I was able to see another face a different face. What seemed to me a truer face just beneath my own? Now, it is early morning, and I'm in a small hotel bathroom three thousand miles from home. I'm fifty four years old. And it's been a long time since I've been that girl. But here I am again staring and staring at my reflection a stranger stares back at me. The coordinates. I'm in San Francisco Japan town to be precise. Just off along flight the facts, I'm a woman a wife a mother a writer a teacher. I'm a daughter. I blink the stranger in the mirror blinks to a daughter over the course of a single day and night. The familiar has vanished. The millier belonging to a family on the other side with a thin wall. I hear my husband crack open a newspaper the floor seems to sway or perhaps. It's my body trembling. I don't know what a nervous breakdown would feel like, but I wonder if I'm having one I trace my fingers across the plains of my cheekbones down my neck across my clavicle, as if to be certain, I still exist. I'm hit by a wave of dizziness and grip the bathroom counter in the weeks and months to come. I will become well acquainted. With the sensation. It will come over me on street corners and curbs airports train stations. I'll take it as a sign to slow down to take a breath feel the fact of my own body. You're still you I tell myself again and again and again..

"Such an important discussion many levels and i i want it think appear it's worth repeating a few things and certainly two seconds and mike sprints ball one that agonizing over the decision is often harder than whatever the outcome of the decision will be and for that matter if you make in in many cases not all but in many cases if you make a decision and you decide that it's not the right decision for you you can quipped you can do something else it's not a peep permanent sentence necessarily and also this is something that i've had to learn in a real learn many times in my life which is if extend he can you that long to make a decision eight you probably don't and shouldn't don't want to in shouldn't do whatever it is that you're agonizing over with pro and con los trying to justify in some fashion it it's and in both of those points a bigger so so important i also think that if you're waiting for something to feel right before you do it if you're waiting for a sense of security our confidence that those things are sort of like being ready he'd mistake treadmill if you think you need enough for this before you do that when you achieve whatever that is you think you need your good and then of the and you're never ever going to be satisfied which is whatever it is you think you need before you do something if it's not something that is real so again if you think oh i need this much money before i do this when you get that much money then you gotta realize actually think any disparate two more in it's just going to be this kerrigan friend of you that you are in agonize injured but you're agonizing over trying to reach and then the other thing is i'm in a quote danny shapiro hear the great writer danny shapiro if you're waiting for confidence and she i asked or once about confidence in she said that confidence is highly highly overrated and that most confident people or overly confident people tend to be kind of annoying and he said what she felt was more important than confidence was courage and i fully fully agreed.
