Speak Easy Zoom: Don’t Tell Mom

May 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Speak Easy on Zoom for TRUE STORIES TOLD LIVE on Thursday May 6th, 2021. Our theme this month: “Don’t Tell Mom!” Did you ever do something wrong and thought, “What would Mom think if she found out?” Maybe you did something embarrassing or rebellious? If Mom found out would she be angry, embarrassed, disappointed? With Mother’s Day on the horizon let’s tell stories our moms never knew (or eventually knew). As always, feel free to share any true story the theme inspires.

We’ll open up the “meeting” at 6:30pm for anyone who would like to tell or hangout before. To tell, you’ll need access to a webcam and audio (there’s a link below to test those features in Zoom). Stories start around 7:15pm.

If you’d just like to watch, you don’t need webcam/audio capabilities, and you don’t have to video broadcast if you’d prefer not to. Although I imagine our tellers would love to see your faces/reactions to their stories!

Everyone except the tellers and host are muted during stories to cut down on overlapping audio. However, you can jazz hands, thumbs up, visibly react to stories on webcam, or comment in the chat room.

**We will be recording and live-streaming the event then share it to our Facebook page afterwards. If you want to tell but not be recorded, let us know before your story and we’ll stop recording.**

Lastly, this is a FREE event! We want to keep meeting and sharing stories however we can.

If you haven’t used Zoom yet, don’t worry it’s pretty simple! Below are steps for downloading the app onto your computer…
