The Moth Radio Hour

Sundays at 9 p.m.

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.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate and often enlightening experience for the audience.

The Moth StorySLAM takes place each month at Café Istanbul, where ten brave souls volunteer themselves to tell a true story in front on a live audience.

On Thursday, January 29 at the Joy Theatre, the winners of those StorySLAMs are going head-to-head at the Moth GrandSLAM. Comedian David Crabb is the special guest host of the evening, and WWNO’s Laine Kaplan-Levenson sat down to find out why he loves telling stories and hosting Moth events.

Inaugural Moth GrandSLAM Championship: Fish Out Of Water

Credit Jason Saul / WWNO

The Moth presents the GrandSLAM, a battle of wits and words - fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking and all points between. Listen as ten StorySLAM champs tell tales of being out of their element: the freak, the foreigner, dressed for the opera at the clambake, out of the loop, the only person in the loop, the voice of dissent, the lonely fool. Outsider, interloper, odd man out. The black sheep, the chatty monk, the juror with a doubt.

The Moth was back for July, with a monthly StorySLAM at Café Istanbul. The theme for this evening was "Pride".

StorySlams are an opportunity for anyone to submit their name, tell a story, and receive feedback from the audience in a non-confrontational environment. The Moth is storytelling, not standup, and participants are of of all ages and backgrounds, says producer Mallory Falk (who is also a freelance producer and reporter for WWNO).
