S2: E5 Growing Up With Ric (1/2)

🟢 "For a long time I believed that everything was my fault. And it crushed me. But it also built my resilience. Because I refused to be crushed." Ric Clark was 39 when found out that he had an extra 47th Y chromosome, a non-hereditary genetic variation that occurs in about 1 in 1000 males but is hardly ever diagnosed. In the first of two episodes, he tells the story about how this discovery affected him, the biggest misconception about people with an extra Y, and what it was like growing up as a child with chromodiversity. A rare peak into what life can be like with this relatively common yet little known chromosomal difference. Click here to access podcast.
