  • There’s something for everyone! ♥️

    I’m a frequent podcast listener, subscribing to multiple types from crime and science to news or human interest. The Moth is such a beautiful collection of storytellers, I’ve found myself more than once laughing aloud alone in a room or feeling so heartbroken by a sense of shared experiences from these oral authors, tears streaming down my cheeks while riding public transit.

  • human stories expertly told

    I’ve been listening to the moth for as long as I can remember. I love these very real, very relatable stories. It gives me hope for my country to hear from people that are slowly but surely more ethnically, culturally, sexually, or otherwise "diverse". We are all "diverse," and we are all alike if we suspend judgement and listen to each other. The storytellers, in their sometimes brutal, naked honesty, are just like us. They are flawed, beautiful and oh so lovable. So are we.

  • Not great

    I like the Moth, it used to be one of my favorite podcasts but the loud cheering and clapping from the audience, the loud trumpet theme song and the loud ads just make it nearly impossible to enjoy the lovely stories especially at night when all you want to do is unwind, relax and fall asleep. For those reasons I haven’t listened to it in a couple of years at least. more

    I once gave a good donation to Maine Public Radio in the early Y2 years, but I haven’t been able to offer much deserved support for the podcasts I love. They were all free when I started listening, and now I feel shut out and fear that before long I won’t have any access to these wonderful educational podcasts. more
