The Dad Who Was Afraid of Virginia Woolf
Play • 1 hr 9 min

It's time to talk about moms. Difficult, one-of-a-kind, ride-or-die moms. Four-time Moth champ, memoirist, king of the one man show, and "Stories in High Heels" TikTok phenom Jamie Brickhouse is here to remember his Mama Jean, to work out why storytelling matters in our family relationships, and why we can't change until our stories do. We also talk about queer identity in families, growing up in East Texas, and our old friends addiction & recovery.

Get a copy of Jamie Brickhouse's memoir DANGEROUS WHEN WET (St. Martins 2015) or look to preorder his new memoir I FAVOR MY DADDY: A TALE OF TWO SISSIES here.
