Producer/Host Veronica Faisant in conversation with writer, producer & author and award winning documentarian, Teresa Bruce.

In her first book, The Other Mother: A Rememoir, Teresa describes alternative and surprizing avenues for nurturing and mentoring apart from the traditional mother/child relationship.  In particular, she focuses on a friendship with her 82 year old dance instructor. Their interaction enhanced Teresa’s personal and social development during a period of frustration with her own mother’s lofty expectations.
