Always a delight!

Whenever I catch an episode of The Moth on the radio, I feel like I’ve won the lottery. I was thrilled to find the podcast and be able to control when and where I get to listen!

Commodore FitzHigham is my new hero

Story telling in this episode could not be better. Resoundingly humorous, delightfully British. One heck of a tale about the absurdities we attach to cockameme schemes, uniting us all. The universal disdain for the French.

Great stories

The 1st story was by far the best. I feel the most alive by listening to it.
