Getting to Know Your Mom as a Person, with Renita Parker Mobley - Tell Me About Your Mother
When Renita Parker Mobley heard comedian Sasheer Zamata interviewing her mom on This American Life last year it suddenly made her realize: she'd spent years mad at her mom for leaving her dad and kicking off a messy divorce, maybe it was time to get to understand her better as a woman, not just a mom who had failed to live up to Renita's expectations. So began an ongoing project through which Renita interviews her mom regularly about her life. In our Season 1 closer, it's Renita being interviewed about her past experiences with her mom and what she's learned through this project.
