Moving

Stories that touch and move you - sometime to tears, sometimes to laughter and sometimes horror or even pleasure! Like The Moth but edgier and, as a result, a lot more interesting.

Tristan Pope ,

Crazy person

I listen to this podcast with earbuds in and regularly laugh out loud. I’m sure people think I’m nuts.
I love Risk and I can’t get enough of how hilarious Kevin is. Legend

Breezy Southwind ,

G’day from Auz, thanks for all the laughs!

Kev, there’s just something about your voice and your ridiculous sense of humour that I can’t get enough of. You and the show are endearingly fabulous!
