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 at the Old Ironworks on August 1, 2013 and later produced by Lucy Rosenbloom. The theme of the evening was “In Hot Water”, and The Listening Post’s Kate Richardson tells of working a simple college job with a boss that took things a little too seriously.
*Bring Your Own is brought to you by Laine Kaplan-Levenson, Liam Daniel Pierce and Nina Feldman. The next BYO is Thursday, December 5 in the Bywater neighborhood. For details go to bringyourownstories.com.
