Tear Jerker / The Philip DeFranco Show
Phil's life story about how he got to where he is today. It includes things like his parents divorcing, his mom's boyfriend trying to murder them both, finding out about his PKD, and other terrible things.
I hate this. I hate this more than most any story I've had to cover in the past year. Someone who gave themselves to people, and had so much more to offer, taken away in their prime at such a young age.
