What else can be said?

The Moth is so popular for a reason. It gets down to the basic interest of podcasting— hearing stories. Sometimes it’s a great listen, sometimes it’s a good listen, and sometimes it’s just ehh. Depends on the story teller, which is the most natural facet of the show.

I’m so sad to write this review

I’m honestly devastated to write this review. From the bottom of my heart. I’ve been listening to the Moth for years. I often think of the many stories I’ve heard and still recount them to others, however, I recently decided that I can no longer support the Moth. The Moth changed my heart, it opened my mind to people of all walks of life and their stories. I cried, I laughed, I found compassion. The reason I am signing off is that I feel the Moth has started to use their platform for their own personal political agenda. What once was a inclusive podcast for all has now become one sided. What finally pushed me over the edge was they put out a show with very one sided controversial political topics (specifically ones that were very emotional and heart wrenching) the week of the election & at the end of show they told their viewers to “choose wisely”. I was blown away. This felt manipulative, using a heartbreaking stories to garner votes for their preferred stance. In this day in age, with so many people and places divided against each other I was so disappointed to see a podcast, that often promotes togetherness, choose instead to promote division. But alas, people will do what they think is best and right and I guess the Moth thinks this is way to make a better world. Sadly, I don’t agree and will no longer be a listener. Thanks for the good times Moth, they were great while they lasted.

Great simple everyday stories.

Stories that are genuine and well told because they are told by the person who loved them.
