EP. 55 — What’s It Like To Be An Egg Donor? with Amy Throckmorton and Elizabeth Gaba

Nineteen years ago, Amy Throckmorton donated an egg. Eighteen years later, she was contacted out of the blue by Gaba, whose life she helped create.

Amy and Gaba met, and discovered that Gaba is currently a singer in the SoCal Vocals, the acapella group that Amy was a member of at college. Jonathan had to talk to them and serve some Pitch Perfect realness.

Amy Throckmorton is on Twitter @Hereinamyland. Gaba is @elizabethgaba.
