First, DEMETRIUS KELLY of Northeast Philadelphia discusses his journey home after doing time in prison. Then, Iraq war veteran BRYAN ADAMS of Palmyra discusses his long journey home from war and back to civilian life as a business student at Rutgers-Camden. Then, we’ll talk to NATE WINELAND, a senior at Susquehanna University, about what it’s like coming home for the Thanksgiving break, and the Thanksgiving he spent in Spain last year.

Family gatherings: The passage of time

Voices in the Family

Holiday gatherings punctuate our year. They mark the change of seasons but also personal changes and rights of passage in our lives.

Dr. Dan Gottlieb asks: who’s coming to dinner over the holidays? How do families mark the passage of time with pronouncements, births, feuds, and feasts? We also look at some of the basics of getting along. Dan is joined by psychiatrist Barbara Wingate, M.D. and wellness coach and health educator Elizabeth Scott.
