This story was told at the Old Ironworks on August 1, 2013. The theme of the evening was “In Hot Water”, and The Listening Post’s Jesse Hardman revealed why he left his job in a foreign country, and why he hasn’t been back. The Listening Post's other half, Kate Richardson, produced this story.

*Bring Your Own is brought to you by Liam Daniel Pierce, Laine Kaplan-Levenson and Nina Feldman. 

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