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

Three stories developed and crafted in The Moth Community Program:

A daughter is confronted by her parent’s empty fridge, a girl struggles with her family’s neighborly etiquette, and a teacher speaks up in defense of one of her female students.
