FROM THIS EPISODE
First... a story about a wrong guy in the wrong place, with all the wrong documentation. Moran Cerf is an actual person who really seems to have stepped out of a novel. Born in Israel, he's been a hacker, bank robber, storyteller, neuroscientist and more. In this story the elements of his life collide in one awkward moment that is very difficult to explain away.
Moran Cerf is a professor of neuroscience and business at the Kellogg School of Management and the neuroscience program at Northwestern university. He’s been hacker, furniture-designer, pilot, radio host, and filmmaker. Currently he’s the Alfred P. Sloan professor at the American Film Institute, and is a multiple-time Moth Grand-Slam storytelling champion.

Next... a story about a person, who's in danger of blowing up at any moment. Doug’s father had reached a point in his old age, where he had become an unpredictable danger to himself and others, and Doug was determined to try and swoop in to fix everything. But diffusing a bomb is a delicate operation, and Doug soon found out that a human bomb who happens to be your father, can be the most dangerous of all.
Doug Bost is a screenwriter and short story writer living in Brooklyn. He's written a short film called Policy of Truth, about experiences with his dad and Alzheimer’s. It’s currently on the festival circuit.
