Raleigh-Durham's 2017 Cast!

Raleigh-Durham’s 2017 Cast!

Auditions are a wrap. KeAnne and I heard over 40 amazing stories and met over 40 amazing women. Each woman we met was someone I wanted to pour a cup of coffee for and invite her to stay and talk. That’s the joy of Listen to Your Mother for me – meeting so many people with whom I genuinely feel an instant connection.

Among those auditions were these women. Their stories are the ones that will create our 5th and final Listen to Your Mother show in Raleigh-Durham. We are beyond excited to introduce them to you now.

Anne Anthony is a mom to two grown daughters, a full-time writer and part-time photographer living in Chapel Hill. Her work can be found on her website.
