The press release highlights Kendall Austin Stulce’s discovery of his large biological family via DNA testing and his creation of the Family Twist podcast. This platform explores stories of adoption, DNA surprises, and family secrets, offering support and raising awareness about the complexities of family dynamics. Entering its third year, the podcast continues to provide a community for those exploring their roots.

Imagine being an only child for 17 years, orphaned, and then through the power of a DNA test, discovering a large, previously unknown family of seven siblings. This isn’t a Hollywood script but the real-life journey of Kendall Austin Stulce, a co-founder of the intriguing, thought-provoking Family Twist podcast.

Through the podcast, Kendall navigates the complex emotions surrounding adoption, donor conception, and increasingly frequent DNA test surprises. He shares his stitched narrative with a growing audience, popularizing the relatively unknown experience of navigating these unique scenarios.

Why would Kendall’s tale and the Family Twist podcast interest your audience? Here’s why:

  • Relatable Emotional Voyage: Following the highs and lows of Kendall’s life, from his adoption tale to startling genetic discoveries, paints a broader picture of love, heartache, and the universal human curiosity to trace our roots.

  • Unprecedented Insights: Gain an insider look at the Family Twist, a podcast giving voice to those grappling with hidden truths about their ancestry and DNA surprises.

  • Advocacy and Togetherness: Beyond sharing compelling narratives, the podcast is a beacon of community for people in similar situations, advocating the power of dialogue, empathy, and pertinent policy changes.

  • Raising Awareness: Kendall’s personal story alongside his work with Family Twist opens conversations about the implications of DNA testing and truth in familial stories, fostering a culture of support for those unearthing bewildering truths about their origin or family identity.

It was this journey and the subsequent whirlwind of emotions that inspired Kendall and his partner, Corey Stulce, to start the podcast Family Twist. The platform became an avenue to explore personal stories of adoption, DNA discoveries, and the often confusing intertwining of biology and relationships. But most importantly, the podcast offered a medium to address the often undiscussed trauma and issues that arise from family secrets and discoveries.

“So many people go through things like this alone,” Kendall says. “With Family Twist, we wanted to change that. We wanted to show that it’s okay to struggle, it’s okay to be confused… and it’s okay to go on a journey to find out who you are.”

In Family Twist, Kendall fervently utilizes his own lived experiences to foster an open and empathetic platform. Through empathetic conversations with guests, ranging from individuals discovered through DNA tests to those who lived with family secrets, the podcast has successfully highlights the myriad belly-twisting, heart-wrenching, and joy-inducing moments that often accompany the journey of self-discovery.

“The complexities of life and family are universal. Through Family Twist, we attempt to peel back these layers, fostering understanding and empathy,” Kendall said.

As the Family Twist podcast enters its third year and fifth season, Kendall affirms that the mission of raising awareness about the trauma and issues related to family secrets and discoveries continues unabated. To all those curious, he invites you to be a part of the Family Twist community, to listen, learn, and share these often untold human interest stories that truly echo the essence of family and belonging.

“Everyone has a story. Everyone has a unique perspective. And you never know how your story can help someone else,” Kendall concludes.

The Family Twist podcast is available on all major podcast platforms.
