#1: Dan Savage

Dan Savage has helped redefine what it means to be a family in the 21st Century. And given his ancestors, it’s no surprise why. Dan’s family history traces back to the 1920s Chicago mob scene, a South Asian autocracy, and to a New York City apartment filled with men trying to save a community. We’ll tell these stories and introduce Dan to a surprise relative. CREDITS: Twice Removed is produced by Meg Driscoll, Ngofeen Mputubwele, Audrey Quinn, and Kimmie Regler.

Special thanks to Gene Trimble, Monica Garcia, Senator Dick Durbin (also a cousin of Dan’s), Riz Rollins, Amina Steinfels, Charles Manning and Richard Godbeer. Twice Removed is a production of Gimlet Media. Our website -- where y...

Twice removed is Gimlet Media's new family history show. Each episode we take a guest and build a massive family tree filled with people they are connected to. We then follow one branch of that tree, stopping at the most fascinating people and stories along the way. At the end of the hour, we introduce the guest to a surprise relative, someone they couldn't possibly have imagined they're related to. It's a family reunion unlike any other. They could be filled with delight... or abject horror. You never know. It's family.
