Stories from the National Public Radio archives celebrate moms and motherhood.

Stories so compelling you’ll stay in your car to hear them through—even if you’re sitting in your own driveway. Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! host Peter Sagal captures your attention with colorful tales for and about moms.

Like Madame Defarge from A Tale of Two Cities, Susan Stamberg has often knitted her way through political upheaval. While knitting her first baby blanket, she muses on a political milestone. Storyteller Kevin Kling describes the yearly conflict in Minnesota between Mother’s Day and the opening of fishing season. Commentator Gwen Macsai marvels that her children’s standards for motherhood are higher than her own. And comedian Amy Borkowsky shares hilarious messages left on her answering machine by her worrywart mom, including “I’m having second thoughts about that little palm-size computer that you bought. You could swallow it and, God forbid, choke.”

Heard on All Things Considered, Weekend Edition, News & Notes, and other NPR programs, these stories and more are for moms, moms-to-be, and anyone who has ever known or had a mother.

What is a Driveway MomentSM? Maybe it’s happened to you as it has to countless others. . . . You’re driving home, listening to a story on NPR. Suddenly, you find yourself in your driveway (or parking space or parking garage). Rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car to hear the piece to the end. It’s a Driveway Moment.

The NPR Driveway Moments Series collects these “best of” stories so that you are never more than a “play” away from a Driveway Moment.
