The theme of the second episode of weekly first-draft storytelling podcast Story Shuffle is “Phone Calls with Mom.” Everyone has a special kind of relationship with her mom. Good, bad or other, the dynamics insist it is so. This week we have two stories about people with their own unique relationships with mom. First, social worker Michael O’Bryan recalls growing up ‘kinda poor’ and how that has influenced how he works with youth. Second, Kathryn Bezella, an academic executive, tells of her relationship with a bit of family folklore in Wisconsin as told in 2012.
