Weekend Connections: Week of July 3rd

Jul 7, 2017

Weekend Connections is a collection of some of the most noteworthy moments from the week on Connections with Evan Dawson. This episode includes conversations about:

  • Access to birth certificates and family information for people who have been adopted in New York State*;
  • The therapeutic benefits of friendship for people with mental illness;
  • The value of print reporting, and a small-town newspaper that won a Pulitzer Prize.

*Correction: In the podcast, the host and producer say the legislation has passed the New York State Assembly, but the bill has passed both the Assembly and the Senate.
