The Moth
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

The best
I love the Moth, my favorite podcast! Funny, touching, educational, sometimes light and sometimes very serious. Love it.

Viva The Oral Tradition!
Moth is such an awesome, uplifting, stark (in both depths of beauty and abject anguish at times) testament to the human experience, survival instinct, wit, luck, hilarious perspective ( name it) and of course the timeless art of storytelling. I love this podcast. More!

Mix down the applause
Please. It’s a great show, but listening with headphones is rough. The story ends, the story teller says(whispers) “thank you” and then IT JUMPS TO TRIPLE VOLUME “WOOOHWHwooooowowowoohaaYEEEAAAHHHHHHH”. It’s just not needed.
