Listen to Your Mother #TwinCities Welcomes An Emcee To Remember!

by Galit on April 20, 2017

Oh Twin Cities friends, you are in for SUCH a treat!

We are thrilled to announce that the emcee for this year’s show is none other than Sally Koering Zimney, who read the show-stopping closing act in our 2016 show, “I’m Thankful for Tacos.”

Join us on May 4th at the beautiful and historic Riverview Theatre and you, too, can hug Sally like this after the show.

Just kidding about that—but this beautiful moment of Sally after the show captures the heart and essence of what it feels like to be at a Listen to Your Mother show. It’s hard to explain, but this image comes pretty close!

Sally’s short bio reads:

Sally is an award-winning speaker, presentation coach and consultant, and host of This Moved Me, a podcast about the art of public speaking. She believes a good talk can move the world – even a 5-minute one! Her first paying acting gig was as host on a low-budget cable TV show many years ago – thankfully there was no YouTube cause she’s learned a lot since then. She’s spoken in front of thousands of people, coached hundreds of talks with the mantra that the imperfect, human selves we are trying to hide are the very thing we need to share. You can listen to the show and find out more about Sally at

And her LTYM piece, I’m Grateful for Tacos is so beloved and close to our hearts.

And not just because we love tacos, but because she grabbed onto such a relatable part of motherhood with heart, humor, and transparency.
