But Why?

Eight-year-old Betsy Walter goes on a campaign to understand her parents' divorce. A campaign that takes her to school guidance counselors, children's book authors, and the mayor of New York City. (10 minutes)

The interview with Betsy first aired on NPR's All Things Considered—in 1987, when a young Ira Glass was a producer there.
