It was a pleasure to speak with the Extreme Genes podcast's Fisher last week! We chatted about family DNA surprises that some people discover when they use at-home testing. Fisher invited me on to talk about this as this is a subject close to him -- he once had to share the shocking news with a friend that her DNA results suggested the father who raised her was not her biological father.
Check out episode 249 to hear our discussion and understand more about how Watershed DNA came to be and how I help people who have gotten DNA surprises after an at-home test.
Fisher mentions this Atlantic article by Sarah Zhang ("When a DNA Test Shatters Your Identity") which describes stories of those affected by DNA surprises and the secret Facebook support groups popping up as a result of these unexpected results. Check that one out as well!
