The Moth, hailed as “brilliant and quietly addictive,” by the London Guardian, is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the craft of storytelling. Each show features simple, old-fashioned storytelling on thoroughly modern themes from wildly divergent raconteurs who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. They’ve presented more than 3,000 stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide through the ongoing programs-The Moth Mainstage, Moth StorySLAMs, MothSHOP Community Program, MothSHOP Corporate, and the Moth Podcast. The Peabody Award-winning Moth Radio Hour airs on more than 200 public radio stations across the country. Join us for this special Moth Mainstage, featuring stories of chasing the ephemeral, battling the ravages of the endless tick tick or begging the universe for just one more second. Put your pencils down. Time’s up.

The Moth Podcast

Jenny’s 2010 story at the Moth Mainstage has been selected for the Moth’s podcast. Listen to it on their website or on iTunes.
