Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on “All Things New Orleans” and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This story was told on April 2, 2015 at 218 S. Jeff Davis and later produced by Natalie Yahr. The theme of the evening was “Secret Weapon.” Here, BYO Producer Karen Gardner tells of love, loss, and unpredictability.
