Summary

Like Mother is a mother-daughter comedy that explores two generations of women who are a lot alike, but who are desperate to believe otherwise. This semi-autobiographical, 10-episode Audible Original follows 30-year-old Allison (Alison Stevenson) who is forced to move home after losing her job. Now that she’s back in Davis, and living with her mother Sarah (Susie Essman), the two must confront their combative relationship head-on and figure out how to live under the same roof. Written through each character’s alternating perspective, this scripted audio series gives us an intimate look at the complicated relationship between a mother and her daughter -from one night stands in your mom’s house, to fat-shaming, to whether knocking on wood actually wards off evil, Like Mother gives us a front a front row seat to an raw and realistic portrayal of millennial relationships, and asks us to question, not only our own relationships, but ultimately ourselves. This original podcast is 10 episodes, please begin with the episode titled 'Home Sweet Home.' [Contains sensitive content] ©2020 Audible Originals, LLC (P)2019 Audible Originals, LLC

Please Alison write more!

I loved this, so frank and real. I lost my mother a few years ago but I can totally relate! Well done and so refreshing. Love the honesty. Feminist must read list !

Charming but performance isn't right

This is warmly written & well produced. Alison Stevenson's delivery is distracting for me - it sounds like she is reading the lines rather than acting the scenes. Maybe it's just a style but it takes me out of the story completely. Susie Essman is excellent and they have good chemistry. I will give their next collaboration a try for sure.

Unoriginal

Sorry, but stressful and not enjoyable to listen to. Since both actors are comedians it probably would have been better if both stars had collaborated on the script.

Best free item I have got from Audible, superb

It may help if you're Jewish. This is a great and deep production. Funny, sad, real. Never boring.

Stick with it, it’s a grower

So after hearing the first episode I wondered if I would keep going. I’m pleased I did. It definitely grew in me as did the characters. For me it wasn’t laugh out loud but it was entertaining. I really enjoyed it.

Good Storyline

I really enjoyed the story and it did hit home on mother daughter relationships. The only issue I had was how Alison disrespect God in earlier on in the story. I understand that she was trying to get a point across, but this could be done in a less disrespectful way.
