Back When I Was Older

As a parent, what do you do when your four-year-old starts telling you about memories you don't recognize? Memories that he claims are from a past life?

Dr. Jim Tucker runs a little-known department at the University of Virginia called the "Division of Perceptual Studies." There he oversees a database of 2,500 "cases of the reincarnation type." They are children, from all over the world, who say they remember details of a past life. And Tucker believes they can teach us something about human consciousness and where it lives. In this episode, we introduce you to a family whose 4-year old son is one of Tucker's cases. And we discover what the case is really about.
