Episode 4: The Blame Game

Twist! Simon discovers that his sperm may not be as excellent as advertised. He discusses the blow to his ego with another man diagnosed with male factor infertility, and we discuss sperm quality with an expert.

They’re joined by Dr. Jesse Mills, Director of The Men's Clinic at UCLA, and Nam Tran, an expectant father with male factor infertility.


Infertility affects an estimated one in eight couples, and about one in five known pregnancies ends in miscarriage. These experiences can be lonely and isolating for people going through them, and bewildering for those who want to offer support but don’t know how. Join health reporter Anna Almendrala and comedy writer Simon Ganz as they share their journey toward parenthood with frank, humorous discussions on the humiliations and hilarity of infertility, miscarriage, and IVF.
