AUDIO: "Becoming the Boss"

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 was the winning story on December 5, 2013, told in the courtyard of 3020 Royal Street. The theme of the evening was ‘The Passion”. Here, Carli Raben proves how a true fan is born… to run.

*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.

Laine Kaplan-Levenson is a producer at WWNO, The Moth and Listening Post and cofounder of Bring Your Own.
