There are many better optionsAs a long time listener and live show attendee, I’ve supported The Moth because of the real and unscripted stories people shared. Every episode or show it would be a mystery as to who and what we were going to hear, and whether sad or uplifting, we knew the journey would at least take us somewhere new. But with the evolution of the show, the the liberal bias of the production has become so skewed that the content selected from producers seems nothing more than a tired, contrived slant on a narrative - exactly the thing I came to The Moth to get away from. After hearing a forced “free” promotion for something call the Confessional podcast embedded into an episode, I realized I had enough of this homogenized, unoriginal content and will unsubscribe. It’s not the storytellers - I’ve been to several live shows and they are as wonderful and inspiring as ever - it’s the production of the show and its capitulation to what probably amounts to nothing more than better numbers. Bottom line, The Moth has enough daring to repeatedly diminish and ridicule anyone or anything even daring to espouse conservative or religious values, but doesn’t have the conviction to actually make a stance on where they stand, which I would at least have respect for. If you really want new, original content that comes across unapologetically raw and unbent (without awkwardly trying to feel ‘edgy’), then I recommend listening to Risk, a much better podcast..Score: 1/5

Great StoriesI was referenced to this pod cast from listening to Radio National [Australia] and it is a great series of story telling of life experiences. Fantastic subjects and well told and nicely produced, I would recommend this to all who enjoy the spoken word and the connection that the narrators make with their listeners. Full marks for all involved..Score: 5/5

Fine... Just two thingsSo this podcast was AWESOME... But then basically every episode became explicit and because I’m a child I can’t listen to them. So.. I had an idea where you could make some episodes WITH the family-friendly content from the podcasts that show the ‘E’ icon (that is, if there are any) and so we (the kids listening) could continue listening to the stories we love WITHOUT being disappointed every week when we can’t listen to the new podcast show. Also, the past episodes are rapidly deleting. You used to have stories from as far back as 2016. Now, there are BARELY any left from 2018. Including one of my favourite episodes about a particular kitten named Poppins. So please, bring back the old episodes..Score: 5/5

The highlight of my podcast listening weekI have been listening for years. A fantastic podcast, touches on a whole variety of subjects, I always learn something, thank you for making The Moth. The only thing I would recommend would be to get to the stories faster rather than linger on the intro (the lingering only happens on some episodes). I listen from Melbourne, Australia so you have fantastic international appeal too. I skip some podcasts if the topic doesn’t interest me but I never do that with The Moth..Score: 5/5

Gun storyThe latest episode of The Moth was definitely one of my favourites. Hearing the poor man who accidentally shot his friend at 14 was outstanding. As an Australian where guns are banned this story makes me think how lucky that accidental shootings are few and far between. If only America had the same laws so that tragedies like these are few and far between. That poor man having to deal with it over a whole lifetime. I’m so happy to hear that he wasn’t charged and got through such an ordeal with courage..Score: 5/5

Never fails to surpriseStorying telling is an art form that can be explored in many ways. Each teller in the moth series has their own unique way of delivery which adds to the unpredictability of most of what you will hear. You will hear people with quiet voices deliver stories of searing intensity that will stop you in your tracks, raucous people with fantastic comedic timing weaving stories largely out of the tellers own charm, stories you immediately connect to, others completely alien to your own existence. But you will be absorbed. Give it a chance and see for yourself..Score: 5/5

Totally Hooked on The Moth!I periodically do a lot of long-distance driving in remote areas in Western Australia and I travel alone. On my return journey after 5 weeks on the road where there were spells without radio reception and no wifi either, I was tired. It was late - after 9 pm - and I still had three hours to go. I’d finished my last recorded audio book and definitely had done my music to death. I decided to give the car radio another go and managed to tune in to our ABC Radio’s Radio National Channel. They were broadcasting an episode of The Moth. I listened to three stories and I was hooked. One of the stories was told by Edgar Keret. It was about his experience in the Israeli Army and how he came to write his first short story. Not too much later I heard the ping on my iPad- I had wifi again. I pulled off the road and found the Podcasts which I started downloading. That was in 2016. I have travelled with The Moth ever since. Thank you for your wonderful gift of stories and the story tellers are awesome..Score: 5/5

Cruel to cage birdsSo cruel to keep one parrot in a flat in New York. To hear it scream as you put it back in its cage was horrible. Parrots live in flocks & in nature, fly far & wide. Poor little thing to be kept in such an alien environment for you & your husband’s amusement..Score: 1/5

Sleep issuesRecently I have been having insomnia related sleepless nights were I stress a little and try a little too hard to fall asleep and before I know it I’m up at 3:40 in the morning. Last night after hours of not falling asleep at around 4 completely exhausted I listened to this podcast- I let myself truly relax ( for what felt like the first time that night) and just focused on the words that the person was saying which calmed down my mind and I soon fell asleep effortlessly which was the first time in the last few nights! Listening to this podcast is now part of my nighttime routine and I’m hoping it will lead me to better nights of sleeping. X s.Score: 5/5
