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 vote no for the new hosting format. I don't want to meet two new personalities. I want to hear other people's stories. I found the chatter in this episode annoying. I hope this is just a temporary arrangement and Moth will resume regular programming style soon. I know:. I can just FF to the next story but sheesz, do I have to?

love The Moth. the interview with Meg was a treat, as unique a perspective as the flight attendant's.
