Natchez Madam



This sketch grew out of a “grab bag” project organized by Megan Hall. She asked several producers to submit a short audio clip of their choosing, then gave each of us copies of everyone else’s clips. The resulting pieces were collected and aired on BSR.

The speakers here are actually members of my family – my mother and grandparents – discussing scandalous events that took place long ago in their Mississippi home town. I think of this sketch as my version of “southern gothic.” Photo via studestevo.

Here’s Megan’s version of the grab bag piece, also featuring my grandmother!
