A film by Katy Scoggin
Miriam is an out-of-work journalist, but she's got a beat on a story that could turn things around. The subject: her dad, Gordon, an evangelical who believes the fossil record derived from Noah's Flood.
Miriam knows Gordon's creationist views because he raised her to be one. They don't talk much anymore. This American Life likes his story, though, and they want Miriam to interview him. But getting Gordon on tape is tougher than she'd thought. Soon, Miriam wonders if what she really needs from her dad might not be an interview after all.
