Don't believe the Brochure

Ryan and Jules Smith talk about a memorable drive they once took to the liquor store. (StoryCorps Atlanta)

There are moments in life when sharing important news with your parents makes sense. Sharing that news on a drive to the liquor store probably isn’t one of them. But that is exactly what happened to Ryan Smith. It was also just the beginning of news he’d need to wrap his head around as father to Jules.

This story was produced locally for WABE by Brenda Ford and recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center. StoryCorps Atlanta Conversations can be recorded In-Person or, as Ryan and Jules were able to do from their homes in Tennessee, using StoryCorps Virtual.
