In today’s The Big Story podcast, for years the numbers cited on how common incest was in families were simply assumptions, but the age of voluntary genealogy tracing has led to a reckoning.

Sarah Zhang is a staff writer at The Atlantic who wrote about how DNA tests are uncovering the true prevalence of incest cases. “[Incest] is certainly not common, and the rate is still low when you think about the millions of people who live in, say, the United States, but it’s probably a lot more common than a lot of us would think, or would like to think,” says Zhang.
