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.

So bunt wie das Leben
Ich habe The Moth vor ein paar Jahren entdeckt und höre mir den Podcast oft beim Spazierengehen an – und ich schätze, Leute, die an mir vorübergehen, denken oft, ich wäre ein bisschen seltsam, weil ich oft unvermittelt lache oder nicke oder manchmal auch Tränen in den Augen habe. So viele unterschiedliche Menschen – so viele ehrliche und tolle Geschichten, ich kann nur sagen: Hört mal rein, es lohnt sich.

I've heard so many great stories here over the years. Many, funny, many sad, most somewhere in between but (almost) always worth it.
