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.

Great stories 9 out of 10 times

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