In this hour, hear how celebrated author and writer Adam Gopnik (Paris to the Moon, The New Yorker) embarrasses his son and offends other loved ones by getting lost in the new world of instant message abbreviations.

Also, the story of a first kiss and beyond from a handicapped woman; a pair of unlikely pen pals; and the sad tale of a gay man who comes out to his parents with dramatic consequences.

Note: Some stories are emotionally intense and not for children.

How can I listen to episode #101 again. There doesn't seem to be a place on this page to listen again. Or do I have to download it and put it on an ipod? Forgive my lack of technology
