Giving Motherhood A Microphone

 "Listen to your Mother" are words that make most children squirm. But a group of Triangle women put a new spin on the dreaded phrase in a theatrical event that celebrates the diverse experiences of motherhood.

Cast members tell stories ranging from an unexpected late pregnancy to the challenge of bringing your grandmother into the digital age. Host Frank Stasio talks to three of the cast members in studio: KeAnne Hoeg, Mandy Hitchcock and Joy Salyers. The show takes place at Kenan Auditorium at William Peace University in Raleigh on May 6 and May 8. 

Anita Rao is an award-winning journalist and the host and creator of "Embodied," a live, weekly radio show and seasonal podcast about sex, relationships & health. She's also the managing editor of WUNC's on-demand content.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
