Adam is joined by special guest Yasmin Nair (writer, academic and activist) to discuss the intimate relationship between celebrity and power in the realm of adoption, especially international, transracial adoption. They begin by discussing the famous and complex Farrow-Allen case which recently came back into focus because of the HBO docuseries "Allen v. Farrow". The discussion then broadens to talk about how power, in general, is central to the reality of adoption.
