Open Secret: an interview with Steve Lickteig 
Steve Lickteig is a radio producer and occasional documentary filmmaker. He’s currently working on a film called Open Secret, about his own life. Steve was always told he was adopted but as he got older, he learned there was a lot more to the story than that.
