Foundation calls the cops on unhoused folks who try to spend more than a few minutes on their “property “. Nice of them to sponsor a show featuring those same people…

The most real realness

When I listen to Moth I feel more human and connected to humanity

Take some water with you!!!

I love the show! However You hosts could improve the recordings by offering water to storytellers to take on stages. Nothing sounds more irritating than a nervous person with a dry tongue sticking to their mouth as they tell a story. It is distracting. Great podcast though!!!

Update: 10/6/21
You guys are still letting people go on stage with awful dry mouth. Ugh.
