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.

Thanks for being stories alive! Hey NZ peeps reviewing— check out The Death Dialogues Project podcast and page. We are creating stories surrounding death in NZ. Was so awesome to find this podcast just when we were pondering the 5 minute story. Thanks for lighting the way The Moth!!!
My absolute FAVOURITE
This podcast is my faves. It makes me want to try and start a moth organisation down here in New Zealand!
I found the moth on a facebook feed, listened to a woman who loved her man so much but couldn't fulfill his dreams - she found another that could. A very emotional and heartfelt experience. Utterly addicted to listening to more life stories while I maintain the vines on our beautiful island of waiheke. NZ
