Podcast Rollcall: The Moth Podcast

Genre: Storytelling

What It's About: The Moth -- and I don't know why it's named that -- is sort of an open mic night, but without the requirement of comedy. Anybody attending a live Moth event can get up on stage and tell a story from their lives. The rules are to keep your time to about ten minutes, and you cannot have any prepared notes. Just get up on stage and tell your story.

Why You Should Care: Although this show can be hit-or-miss depending on the speaker or the subject matter, most of the stories are interesting, well told, and either heartwarming or heartbreaking. In other words, if you like to hear a good story -- and who doesn't? -- then this show is for you.

Frequency: Irregular (usually several per month)

Average Length: 15 minutes

As always, if you become a regular listener to a podcast that solicits donations, try to find a way to make the occasional contribution.
