The Moth: The Promise

In November of last year, I told this story about my high school sweetheart at a Moth GrandSLAM in Brooklyn. I was lucky enough to have the story air on the Moth Radio Hour and their podcast a couple months later. I can't tell you what a honor and thrill that is.

I hear from listeners all the time about the stories that have aired on the radio and podcast - at least a few emails each week - but this is the story that people contact me about most often by a wide margin.

Moth Radio Hour appearance!

Exciting news! One of the stories that I told onstage for The Moth’s GrandSLAM championship last year has been chosen for The Moth Radio Hour this week. It will be airing on over 250 stations nationwide from Wednesday through Sunday.


The show will be airing in the Hartford area on WNPR at 9:00 PM on Sunday.

It’ll be airing in New York City on 93.9 WNYC on Wednesday night at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm, and then on WNYC's AM station, 820, on Saturday at 7pm.

It will be airing in Los Angeles on KPCC Sunday at 11am, on Chicago Public Radio Saturday at 2pm, and on WBUR and WGBH in Boston on Thursday at 9pm, and Saturday at 2pm, respectively.

If you are in a market not mention, click here to see if it’s airing in a city or town near you.

You can also listen to the episode online as well on The Moth Radio Hour website.

Just as exciting, this episode of The Moth’s Radio Hour will also be featured as The Moth’s weekly podcast, which is how I was first introduced to The Moth and live storytelling three years ago. The Moth podcast has more than 70,000 subscribers and is downloaded more than a million times each month. If you’re not already listening, I can’t recommend it enough.

You can download the episode featuring my story starting on Tuesday from iTunes or whatever service you use to listen to your podcasts.
