The show was built for the non-famous, non-published, the person dying to get out and express themselves. The first person cast was a gay father. The cast consists of around 10 people, each time the cast changes. People submit their stories and the stories are chosen based on the power of their stories.

Expressing Motherhood was where LA  moms Shannon Noel and Stacie Burrows met and fell into creative love and formed their national sensation, Mommy Tonk.
