Lies and Secrets > Aired 5 April 2006

The Lies My Grandma Told Me is an examination of what makes a lie and why we tell them. How can you tell a lie from the truth? Does it really matter? Local producer Kristina Lundino recorded this piece with John Gerlach on a reel-to-reel. We will also be re-airing a piece called Keeping Secrets by producer Aaron Henkin. Keeping Secrets is an extended interview with artist Frank Warren, who has become the recipient of thousands of secrets submitted from anonymous individuals by postcard. (4/3/06)
