Wow

The book discusses an obscure topic you always kinda wondered about, but not enough to actually research. This is pretty much a red flag, cautionary tale for those considering using a sperm bank. Really eye-opening.

READ THE FINE PRINT!

This story about how assisted reproduction is not well regulated (sperm banks in particular) wants to label 'bad actors' and 'victims', and works hard to bend your sympathies toward the parents. And yet, this whole drawn-out melodrama boils down to one undisputed fact: the sperm donor's profile included the disclaimer that all information was self-reported, but the prospective parents NEVER READ IT. The end.
These are the people who sign contracts without reading them, and complain later about the terms they agreed to. If their due diligence stopped after seeing "movie star looks" and "genius IQ", maybe they aren't careful enough or smart enough to be raising children at all.

Mind blown!!!!!!!!!

I love podcasts this was exceptionally well done.

The story may raise every hair on your head. It did mine.

So many things you'd never think people would have to think about.

I feel bad for the mothers who feel they failed. They did nothing wrong.

A sensational listen. Thank you, Audible.

This review is for all of them, I think a total of 8 episodes.

Unbelievable

Dov Fox ties together the story of a sperm donor and his many children and their families like no other. It's an unbelievable story that captivates from the first word. I will not forget this story for as long as I can remember.

Outstanding story and telling

Such a complex and heart wrenching story. It's so interesting to hear at least two sides of a complicated and intense tale of so many affected families. Very interesting and well told.
