Small Person Acquisition - DocumentaryThis is a story of two men and a little baby. Well, a big baby actually. And the two men -- this baby's two fathers -- they began their lives as girls. Their journey through conception, pregnancy and child-birth is at once exceptional ... and mundane. And it challenges the standard concepts of gender. The Current's Kristin Nelson tells the story of Jay, Bear and their baby Stanley in her documentary, The Small Person Acquisition Project. It first aired on The Current, last June.
Last Word - Christmas CentenarianWe gave the last word on today's show to Freda Gillis of Saint Fintan's, Newfoundland. She will celebrate her 100th Christmas tomorrow. She was born on December 5th, 1910 so she's one of the 100 centenarians we're hoping to meet this season. Her father was one of the pioneers of the community. And one of Freda's fondest memories is about him.
