StoryCorps: Finding strength through childhood heroes

This story most recently aired in the May 17, 2023 episode of Crosscurrents.

One film Baruch Porras-Hernandez liked to watch as a child was "The Last Unicorn" -  he'd watch it over and over. But for his parents, Baruch's obsession was a problem.

Hernandez talks about his childhood obsession, and how his love for unicorns taught him to embrace his own eccentricities. 


BARUCH PORRAS-HERNANDEZ: I just was like, 'By the way, I was a unicorn in a past life and I'm in love with you.'
