Zoë Waters, Maddy Waters, and Nick Waters

Ten-year-old triplets Maddy, Zoë, and Nick Waters have spent their entire lives together, sharing everything from a birthday to a bedroom.


But despite being so close, they’d never sat down and asked each other some of their most pressing questions. So they came to a StoryCorps MobileBooth in Bloomington, Indiana, where they found out they still had a lot to learn.


Originally aired June 30, 2017, on NPR’s Morning Edition.
