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.

NPR Music is throwing a Tiny Desk contest to help fans discover unknown artists. The Tiny Desk Concerts series at NPR has long been a place to see well-known musicians, as well as a launching pad for many others. Now, we're looking for true unknowns. We're asking bands and musicians all over the country to film themselves performing one song behind a desk of their choice.

The winner will play NPR's famous Tiny Desk in Washington, D.C., and travel to Austin, Texas, in March 2015 to appear in Lagunitas' CouchTrippin' showcase.
