A celebration of America's weakest minds
This was a good idea until it was coopted by social justice morons who turned it into a festival enabling weakness and the prolonged adolescence of adults whose self-indulgent cries for attention were mistaken for entertaining stories. Pathetic and annoying. Forget it.
Good story telling
Excellent speakers extremely talented at story telling.
Wonderful stories that make you laugh and cry
I stumbled upon this podcast about a year ago. It is so wonderful to hear all of them amazing stories that people share, I love it! All of the hosts are great, and the stories can be truly inspiring. I have laughed out loud, I have cried out loud, it’s wonderful that you provide this podcast. Thank you for doing what you do. Stay safe and be well.

Love this podcast
A friend turned me on to this show and I’m so glad. Love the stories, the topics, the hosts. I laugh. I cry. I engage. Almost too god to fill my time on long drives. If there is an Emmy/Oscar for podcasts, the Moth gets my vote.
If I could give it 💯 stars, I would. It really helps me calm down when I’m sad. I even like the ads
The Art of Storytelling Lives On
Every episode offers some truly ovation worthy story from mostly ‘average’ from a name recognition perspective but all with stories deserving of attention. I hope they never run out of material to share. This has been a highlight during my Times of COVID.
Can I give it more than 5 stars?
One of the best
Love the stories. Mostly awesome. I wish traditional values could be a little more represented too.
There’s just something special about this show.
Love the Moth and the theme song
The riveting authenticity of these personal stories is completely addictive. I love the Moth!!!!

Stop the terrible practice of filling my podcast with episodes from other podcasts.
All time favorite
If I could give The Moth a 10 star rating, I would. Of the many podcasts I listen to, The Moth is always my go-to for the kind of stories that make it OK (and sometimes even glad) to be human.
All but the music
I love love love The Moth. But the theme music is jarring to my ears! It’s just raucous noise to me. I have to be near the radio to turn the volume waaayyy down until the stories start!
Hands down my favorite podcast!!
A true front row seat!
No matter the content I find myself thinking about these peoples lives over and over.
The best one of my favorite . It’s so sad what happens to that man, but when I came to USA I thought this is the best country in the world, where everyone treats equally, because we all immigrants here, boy ! Was I wrong
Draws you in, really!
Mine was the story of lost at sea😪. Well told. Compelling.
Wonderful Stories about Humanity
All of The Moth Stories take you on a trip into the lives of other humans which is the best way to learn empathy. I wish I could figure out how to transfer the oldest stories available on your website to my podcast playlist on my iphone. Under stories available there are only those from 2020. Thanks.
On my top 3 podcasts!!!
Thank you! 🤗
The story of the first successful hand transplant made me loose my mind.
This has been one of my favorite podcasts for years and one of the only ones to remain an immediate listen all these years later. The Moth has made me cry dozens of times at work.
I laugh, cry, and learn from hearing these very human stories. It’s an amazing podcast and if you ever get a chance to go to a live one, I highly suggest it!
Uplifting, heart-wrenching, human.
The stories told in this program expand your perception of the breadth of human experience. They latch onto your empathy and bring you into the best and worst moments in your fellow human’s lives; they hold on to otherwise fleeting moments of realization and make them available for understanding. It’s an amazing show that will make you cry, but will also make you feel connected to every other person on this planet. A must-listen, every week.

The Moth is my favorite podcast by far. I find myself crying, smiling and laughing during almost every episode. The connection this platform provides for story tellers and listeners all over the world is so beautiful, especially right now during all the heartbreak and isolation. Thank you!!
The worst of times
The COVID virus and George Floyd murder has brought out the best, and worst of people. The Moth is a way to unite us. We need to hear the stories, both humorous and sad, to give us a commonality at a time we need to be compassionate, understanding and strong.
The moth is a good show so far but I still am waiting for the good stories to surface I’ll write another review if my opinion changes
This is the best podcast ever
I love The Moth. I learn a great deal about the human condition by listening to the range of stories told. The Moth episodes are some of my favorite podcasts to listen to while I’m cooking and cleaning.

Stories are powerful for humanity
It’s important to hear stories from all kinds of people, especially those who we don’t know in real life. We are all human, though we have such unique and varied experiences. I don’t love every one of them, but that’s because i’m a human. I usually learn something though. Enjoy it immensely!
I typically like the content of the stories, but the performative pressure of these sessions falls flat. There’s a reason some people are performers and the general populace is not. After this gained more popularity, the performances can be so self indulgent that I absolutely cannot listen. If I hear the intro come on I immediately turn off NPR, which is something I only do for this show.
For Bad People. If you like this, you need to take a long hard look in the mirror and think about making some serious changes in how you live your life.
I love all the stories.
I don’t know that they’re pushing a political agenda, I believe they’re trying to share more stories from people of color and LGBT+ people which I think is a great idea. The moth is about storytelling and empathy. Part of that is listening to everyone, not just people who are the same as you. I’m very sorry to hear that some people are bothered by this, I would have hoped it would opened some hearts and minds, but alas, we have a long way to go. Thank you to the moth for promoting inclusivity and community (which is not something that should be exclusive to the “left”).
I’ve been a subscriber and faithful listener to this podcast for years but I now find myself removing it from my library. I’ve loved the wide array of stories and experiences of people around the world that cover such a huge range of emotions. Over the past few months, however, the topics have become so politically charged and biased that I can’t listen any longer. It’s unfortunate that one of my favorite podcasts has become yet another outlet pushing a political agenda. I’ve turned off the news and television for this reason and yet here we are again with more of the same. Good luck to you Moth but if this is the direction you’re going, you’re going without my support.
Never disappoints, no matter the “subject “
Took a break, then tried it again
I originally enjoyed listening because of the variety of unique stories. They were fun and personal. Then there were too many stories about one topic. The hosts seemed to have their own agenda. I tried The Moth again recently and they are back to sharing good stories. Update: Never mind, I spoke too soon. They still have too many one-sided stories with political agendas.
This is one of my favorite podcasts!
So many ads!
I listened to the Moth about 10 years ago before it became a sensation. I really enjoyed it. I still enjoy the actual stories, but the ads are so corporate and in-your-face I can’t stand it. I listen to other podcasts with ads, and they aren’t so distracting that they take away from the podcast itself. I know the Moth needs revenue, but do they have to pursue in such a corporate culture way?
Too much political agendas
I loved the show. Stories used to bring everyday life stories to average people make us laugh, cry and think. However lately the show has become so political charged and one sided, and the host use the show express their own biased opinions, so disappointed.
Love the Moth, but...
I love your show and enjoy all the different stories in each episodes. I have learned so much about the different challenges and experiences people face in life. However, I am so disappointed that you “forced” religion on us with The Confessional. I was driving and couldn’t really switch. I was intrigued to see where the story of the guy was going. However it just turned into church preaching. Your audience is diverse and this type of religious podcast was inappropriate. Terrible. I had to turn it off.
Jon Goode and Boots Riley - so great!
I’m a big fan of The Moth. The All Together Now episode hosted by Jon Goode that includes a story by Boots Riley is my favorite so far. Jon’s story about ally ship, his encouragement to see the events happening in the U.S. from another person’s perspective and the point that all large scale change starts with us as individuals made this episode amazing. Definitely keeping an eye (or an ear) out for more from Jon Goode!
I am unsubscribing because, many more times than not, the stories are shoving an extreme far left agenda down the listener’s throat. It’s taken the enjoyment away and become a lecture.

Love the Moth but too many repeats
I love the Moth but there are way too many old posts mixed in with new posts. Please mark the posts as repeats or re-broadcasts. Other than that you guys do a great job.
Your enthusiastic description led me to expect something far different; more unique. This was straight up “Davey and Goliath,” only more Christian. No insights; no universality. As a nonChristian not well educated in Euro history, I found not enough explanation of core concepts (“grace,” “redemption”) to even really follow the discussion. Can’t fathom why you loaned the Moth brand to this.

Got much better
I enjoyed the Moth, but I quit listening regularly when it seemed like half the stories were about how someone messed up their lives (gambled away their life’s savings, got addicted, had sex with strings of people...) Those stories can have important things to say, but it was the same arc over and over. Now it seems more balanced and I am enjoying it more. They have a formula that they train people to follow which ends the stories with a quaint phrase to try it all up, and that is annoying more than not. Overall though, this podcast has been a lovely escape for me. I’ve cried and laughed and stayed late to finish the story many times. Thanks, Moth creators!
The moth is amazing it has great stories and I can turn it on and just all my axiety go away
I look forward to each episode! I’m hoping there is an easier way to find the pictures you often refer to. If I do locate them it’s often by luck after clicking around for quite some time on the site. Usually I have to give up!
