In October 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee opened its hearing into Communist influence in the movie business and promptly denounced 19 prominent directors, producers, screenwriters, and actors as enemies of the state. One of them was Hollywood screenwriter Gordon Kahn, whose films include All Quiet on the Western Front and The African Queen. In this six-part personal history of the Hollywood Blacklist, Gordon Kahn's son, Morning Stories producer Tony Kahn, tells the story of his father's 15 years of persecution and the fear that followed him, his family, and thousands of other Americans for being accused of having the wrong political ideas.

Did you ever wonder what causes colic? What a post-baby marriage looks like? What’s up with modern day wet nursing? Who invented Thanksgiving (hint: a mom had something to do with it)? How to get your body back after having a baby? Well, I have, so I started a podcast to find answers to these questions and many more. Think of it as MPR: Mommy Public Radio. I, Meredith, talk with other moms and dads, and sometimes rant on my own, about these topics and many more.
