Great simple everyday stories.

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

Storytelling is a cornerstone of a solid community!!!

The Moth is stunning! Storytelling is essential to any community that desires to grow stronger, closer and function better! When individuals open up to strangers and tell their stories, you are no longer strangers! Storytelling has been a tradition of communities since mankind has had language and communities!!! When we tell our stories to those around us we build sympathy, empathy, friendships, bonds, relationships, and come together! The Moth provides a platform in a community to start building these stronger bonds together and is absolutely essential to building the communities we desire to live in! Once you get to know the stories of your neighbors it is impossible not to have some bond!!! I listen to this podcast every week!!! I have gone to live events and hopefully one day I will tell a story of my own!!! Keep up the good work, building stronger community bonds one storyteller and one story at a time!!!
