Been There is a series about people whose lives are changing or about to change in a big way. A freshman city council member about to take office; a young mother whose husband died suddenly; or a transgender man going through sexual reassignment-- experiences you can only fully understand if you've been through them.

NPR is connecting them with people who HAVE been through a similar situation, and they're letting us eavesdrop on their conversations about hopes and fears and what comes next.

Hear the series through the week of December 18 on All Things Considered.
