The Moth Marathon Returns to VPR

There are few things in life more compelling and evocative than a well-told story. And Saturday on VPR, you’ll hear fifteen stories courtesy of The Moth!

From noon to 5PM on Saturday, we’ll hear stories in typical Moth fashion: true stories, told live without scripts, notes, props or accompaniment. Stories include that of a firefighter searching through a blazing apartment for two missing children; author Richard Price goes on a ride-along with some New York cops who make assumptions about the people they stop; and a Mormon woman tries out a relationship with an atheist.

The Moth’s type of storytelling is catching on in Vermont. Last month in Montpelier several Vermonters took the stage at Vermont College of Fine Arts to share stories, and you’ll hear some of those all next week during All Things Considered. You can also learn how to host your own Moth event.

Programs like The Moth Radio Hour are listener-supported, which means VPR relies on you for contributions that help pay for them. Please make your contribution today. And remember to tune in Saturday at noon!
