Description

Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of true stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. Moth storytellers stand alone, under a spotlight, with only a microphone and a roomful of strangers. The storyteller and the audience embark on a high-wire act of shared experience which is both terrifying and exhilarating. Since 2008, The Moth podcast has featured many of our favorite stories told live on Moth stages around the country. For information on all of our programs and live events, visit themoth.org.

I felt like I was totally with it. And then I did the breathalyzer and I can't remember exactly what number I blew, but it was like, I think, two times the legal limit. And I thought, this machine is broken.” When Abby retired from professional soccer in 2015, she was a two-time Olympic gold medalist, World Cup champion, and the all-time leader in goal scoring for the U.S. Women’s National Team. Today, she is also known for her speaking, activism, and writing. https://twitter.com/AbbyWambach https://www.instagram.com/abbywambach/

I couldn’t listen the last episode because of the profanities. It’s very upsetting to find this on such a fine podcast.

How does reporting someone for BREAKING THE LAW equate to "ruining" that persons life? Working in a health related field comes with a set of rules and regulations just like many other industries. FFS when you have access to someone's private information it should be obvious that you don't blather about it to a third party!
