WINNETKA: A Memoir
WINNETKA is a ten-episode memoir created and produced by award-winning actress Jessica Harper, with original music. The podcast features the voices of the Harper family, who share in the telling of their remarkable story. WINNETKA tells of six Harper kids coming of age in Eisenhower’s post-war America, in a Chicago suburb called Winnetka. The siblings are buffeted by the rages of a father with PTSD, challenged by life in a big family, rocked by social change in the sixties, and ultimately stunned by a long held family secret.

Self indulgent
This podcast is completely self-indulgent. I can’t believe that I wasted my time listening to the whole thing. The big “reveal” in the end was not earth-shattering like the listener is led to believe. This podcast might be interesting for the family, but it’s not that interesting for everyone else.
