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.

Wanjiru 'Ciru' Kibera nailed her Moth story with the perfectly matched quote: "Tell the story of the mountain you climbed. Your words could become a page to someone else’s survival guide." — MHN

u love Nadia Bolz-weber! read two of her books but yet to go to her church because I still have a little fear of organized religion, but it's kinda stupid because I'm exactly who her church was originally created for. bless everyone!

I was listening to Francois's story and it was so sad. The sign of the times. Having to be in the close and being in a marriage that wasn't real. Mister Rogers.... I am a bit conflicted about him now. He was this nice guy who bought people together. The story of the beach at the beginning of the story is testament to that. I wanted him to fight more for Francois... I wanted him to be the Mister Rogers who knew what was right and followed thru. Mister Rogers had a show to run and he needed the support. The sign of the times and hindsight is 20/20. I don't know. I wish things were different.
