#90 Dad’s Secret Video

11-year-old David Crabb is overwhelmed with curiosity when his father asks him not to watch a video mistakenly left on the family camcorder. David finds the content absolutely shocking.

The First Person Arts Podcast is made possible thanks to support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. This story was performed at Story League Sings at the 14th Annual First Person Arts Festival presented by PNC Arts Alive. Special thanks to Philadelphia Weekly and WHYY’s NewsWorks.
