Episode Summary

BrownTown chops it up with friend, journalist, and mother Jamie Nesbitt about all things motherhood, relating to our mothers as adolescents and adults, and the importance of our mothers on this special day.

Episode Notes

Jamie Nesbitt is a wife, mother, and freelance journalist hailing from Chicago's Southside. Her work can be found in Ebony, XO Jane, RedEye Chicago, DNA Info Chicago (RIP), Chicagoist, Salon, her own blog Hood Feminism, and other publications.
