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.

Jeanie Riess tells of a plane ride that seemed to be going south, and yet still came out on top.

This story was told on April 3, 2014 at the Alvar Library, and later produced by Karen Gardner. The theme of the evening was ‘On the Verge”, and here winner Jeanie Riess tells of a plane ride that seemed to be going south, but in the end she still came out on top.

*Bring Your Own is brought to you by Liam Daniel Pierce, Laine Kaplan-Levenson and Nina Feldman. For details and more stories, go to bringyourownstories.com.
