Rashomon is a podcast where one family tells every side of the same story. Hosted by Hillary Rea.


The Robbins Family

Rachel Robbins was used to her family's Passover dinners. They were always the same from start to finish. But one year there was an unexpected turn of events during dessert. Rachel, along with her family and friends piece together what actually happened through hazy memories and humor.

The Robbins Family is Rachel, Eve, Les, Judy, Sarah, and Jake Robbins. Other family members included in this episode are Beth Oswald, Jane Easley, and Stan Oswald. You also heard from Meredith Levy. Special thanks to T.J. Hurley for our interview in the audio closet. You can check out the first part of our conversation in The Cohen Family episode.
