Prologue - Mad man -- The secret life of secrets -- Wait wait...don't film me -- Bill Clinton's 7 year-old brother -- Credits

Hosted by Ira Glass

This week we bring you little-known and surprising stories of how all sorts of institution -- from a controversial legal precedent to a Hollywood teen dance flick -- began. In one story, a man tries to set the record straight about his life's achievements, which he says include inventing thumb wrestling and popularizing the eating of shrimp in the New York area. And the story of a seven-year-old boy trying to figure out where he comes from.
