"Talk of the Nation" today at 3:00 PM EST

Via my inbox...

Adam Pertman of Evan B. Donaldson Institute will be on NPR's "Talk of the Nation" today at 3 p.m. (Eastern). Also on will be Tom Atwood of NCFA and someone from the ACLU, so it will be sort-of two versus one. Please get word out immediately about the show so that people can call in to provide their comments, support the Institute's work, and comment on whatever the other two guests have to say. Call-in number is 800-989-8255.

3 complaints from ingrates:

1. Adam Pertman continues to be my hero.

2. I can't help it, every time ACLU comes up in this context, I feel personally disappointed by them. :(

3. Not so much the NCFA; they've always had a lot of suckage.

4. Thanks so much for the heads-up. I HAVE to remember this and listen!!

5. You rock, as always.

Will there be a podcast of this?

Yeah it's up at

And thanks Judy. The NCFA sucks, the ACLU lets down, but even more, NPR lets down too.

Color me ungrateful, but 2 men, neither one adopted, talking about moms and adoptees. I just find it... depressingly familiar. I did write to them and stated while I appreciate very much the efforts of the study (and I do), I wish some show at NPR would do a follow up and allow the voices of moms and adoptees to speak for themselves instead of being call-in guests.

Oh, and Atwood is a douche.
