MOTHER

Teen Mom from Radio Diaries
Producer Joe Richman has been giving tape recorders to young people to document their lives. He introduces us to Melissa who didn't mean to get pregnant. But now, after 12 years of living in the foster care system, she's trying to build the family she never had. Melissa is realistic about her situation, but it is clear that she is determined to be a great mother.

Tupperware by The Kitchen Sisters
Tag along with Tupperware dealer Lucky Laurel into the noisy world of Tupperware conventions, regional meetings, and of course, those signature Tupperware parties. Note: Only the round containers "burp".

Muriel's Message by Mira Burt-Wintonick
Memories of a much-beloved grandmother resurface when an unlabeled box of audio cassettes is discovered in the basement. One tape is titled "Muriel's Message." What might this message be? A long-held family secret? A confession? A revelation? Motherly advice? Grandmotherly guidance? We press "Play" and find out.
