When I set out to talk to Larry Rand, I knew very little about him. I was going to do a 20 minute conversation about his new study. Ha. He told me 20 minutes wouldn't be enough, and he was right -- he knew he has an extraordinary story. This led to him inviting me for dinner with him and his partner Jonathan, who I've known for years. The result was this story, one of those that you really feel honored to be able to tell. Even better, Larry was really happy with the results, which always makes me happy, especially when someone opens up so much to you, as he did.
