Only on the "CBS This Morning" podcast, CBS News contributor Jamie Wax talks with the husband and wife duo behind the hit Broadway musical, "Come From Away." Irene Sankoff and David Hein explain why they were drawn to the remarkable true story of kindness shown by local Canadians to thousands of people stranded on September 11, 2001 in a small island town in Newfoundland. Sankoff says the positive message and human decency particularly resonate with audiences today. She and Hein also discuss why they quit their day jobs to write musicals together, how they overcame the odds that were stacked against them and what it's like raising their six-year-old daughter with their "Come From Away" company.
