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 eight minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on All Things New Orleans and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This story was told on February 26, 2015 at the Broad Theater, and later produced by Natalie Yahr. The theme of the evening was "Can of Worms," and here, Carli Raben talks a different kind of passing gas... a kind that finally gained her some respect.
Bring Your Own is a production of Laine Kaplan-Levenson. The next BYO will take place on August 14 in partnership with Shotgun Cinema for their True Orleans doc festival. For more stories, go to bringyourownstories.com.
