Luv it (but for that one thing)

Luv The Moth. Addicted to The Moth.

But- could the balance for the speaking be put above the applause at the end? Could the applause and cheering at the end of the stories be lowered or faded out? The difference when listening to the quiet, personal stories (having to turn up the volume to actually hear the speaker sometimes) and then having my eardrums ripped open by the applause and cheering at the end. No need for this- easily eq’d in this day and age.

Otherwise the perfect podcast to renew faith in our humanity.

Long time listener in Nova Scotia

I first learned of THE MOTH in the summer of 2014 on my Sunday night drives home from my mother’s nursing home. It was broadcast on CBC radio (Canadian Broadcast Corporation). I loved it. When the summer came to an end and CBC stopped broadcasting it, I missed it. To my great fortune, I found this podcast and have been listening since. There is nothing better than to be told a good story.
