For Family’s Sake: Exploring The Joys and Sorrows of Having Kin

Posted On: March 30, 2017

Tom Zink’s November 2016 interview with Jan Lakes on CBC Sudbury was featured 3 months later on a national CBC Radio program, “For Family’s Sake,” on the third Monday in February 2017, a Family Day holiday in Canada. After asking reporters from across the country to send stories about family relationships that had a strong impact, the producers were very moved by Tom’s story about his brother and his family. They played some of Jan Lakes’ interview with Tom as well as their follow-up conversation about the impact on Tom of the November interview.

You’ll find the entire “For Family’s Sake” program here; the portion about Tom’s story begins at 12:40 and ends at 23:20.
