Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in unconventional spaces within the community. Each month, eight storytellers have eight minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on All Things New Orleans and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This Bring Your Own story was produced as part of Unprisoned, a project of WWNO and Finding America. It was told on March 3, 2016 at the Michalopoulos Studio, and later produced by Karen Gardner. The theme of the evening was "Born on Parole," and Jabari Brown won with his story called "Pig Tales."
The next BYO will take place Thursday April 21 at the Jazz and Heritage Center on Rampart Street. More at bringyourownstories.com.
Unprisoned: Stories From The System is produced by Eve Abrams and brought to you by New Orleans Public Radio and Finding America, a national initiative produced by AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio, Incorporated, and with financial support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
