“The Good Adoptee” Suzanne Bachner joins us this broadcast evening. “The Good Adoptee” is a one woman performance based on Suzanne’s life and search to find her biological first family. “The Good Adoptee” was recently performed at the NYS Foster Care & Adoption conference in Albany on Thursday evening May 11th. Suzanne speaks to what inspired her to create, direct, and produce this performance and how she is utilizing it now to help change laws in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York to open original birth certificates to all adult adoptees, the only human beings alive who are not entitled to know who their original families are. A fascinating discussion. Pat O’Brien and Chester Jackson host Play Radio Show
