Originally published Dec. 29, 2022.  

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but sometimes it rolls down the hill and onto a path entirely its own. In this episode, couples, experts and faith leaders discuss the experiences of their children and of their own childhoods. Breaking the Mold is a constellation of stories about what shapes us into the people we are and informs the choices we make, and how we can best make those choices for the next generation to be open, caring and motivated to be true to themselves.
