Tell Me About Your Mother
About This Show
Your mom is likely the first female role model you had--good or bad. Our relationships with our mothers have an impact on us, and that's especially true for women. In Tell Me About Your Mother, journalist Amy Westervelt talks to a variety of women about what their mothers taught them, connecting these personal histories to the broader story of the evolving roles, expectations, and opportunities for each generation of women.

Thoughtful and interesting!
People get pretty deep on this show and I like it! It's not at all like the therapy session it sounds like, and has something for men, women, parents, and non-parents alike.
