ELEESE BOHANNON-SCOTT reads at our 2016 DC show, by Julie Lowery Photography
This year, LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER gave motherhood a microphone in 41 cities — over 500 stories told, with thousands of live-listeners in audiences across the U.S. and Canada.
Now we invite YOU to experience our extraordinary season featuring powerful voices that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.
You can listen to each and every story from the 2016 season. To watch the stories as they appeared live on stage, click on a city playlist below:
Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, Birmingham, Boston, Boulder, Burbank, Charleston, Chicago, DC, Evansville, Kansas City, La Crosse, Lehigh Valley, Lincoln, Little Rock, Madison, Metro Detroit, Milwaukee, Nashville, New Orleans, North Jersey, Northern Utah, NYC, Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh, Portland, Providence, Raleigh Durham, Rochester, San Antonio, San Francisco, Seattle, Southeast Texas, Southwest Michigan, Spokane, St. Louis, Twin Cities, and Vancouver.

Listen To Your Mother brought us together this past spring on local stages before live audiences, and now–with our video release–we invite the global audience to come closer; to listen, learn, laugh, cry, and maybe even find hope anew. Together.
