Paul Reza Afshar
His mum made him
Whether it’s his mum Teresa’s crusade to gender-neutralise hymns at church or raising her children as fruitarians, being normal was never going to be easy for Paul. But his unconventional and at times testing relationship with Teresa is what has shaped the man he has become.
Through the podcast, Paul reflects on the many peculiar stories of childhood with his guests to explore just how our mums make us.
The funny. The memorable. The dark and the light.
Paul’s own journey, a patchwork of relatable and sometimes extraordinary influences that bear strongly on his developing identity and ambition as a teenage boy, is shared in each episode.
