Audio: Bring Your Own, "The Mac Boutique" by Isaac MacDonald
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.
Under the theme of "Too Good to be True," Isaac MacDonald confesses to shipping his computer to "The Mac Boutique," to support his D.I.Y. mentality on life. That leads to a close relationship with SIRI, months of wondering where his computer actually is, and a cluster of conversations that question what is legitimate and what is a scam.
