FROM THIS EPISODE

This week we bring you little-known and surprising stories of how all sorts of institutions — 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 old boy trying to figure out where he comes from.
