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 by University of New Orleans Professor Richard Goodman on September 19, 2013 at Fortier Park in Bayou St John. The theme of the evening was 'Distortion', and here Goodman rationalizes his slow uptake with women, and the repercussions of attending an all boys high school. Produced by Mallory Falk.
