Since 1997, The Moth has been collecting and sharing stories. Now they're taking a moment to pause and look back, from a whiskey-fueled dream in Georgia... to the storytelling movement of today. 

For its 20th anniversaryThe Moth honors and celebrates the diversity and commonality of human experience, with 25,000 stories to date, shared live and without notes.

A special anniversary episode looks back at memorable stories and moments throughout The Moth’s past two decades. The inventor of the Baby Calzone runs into trouble with the mob. A difficult break-up lures a young woman into a digital vortex. And a pragmatic idealist learns to listen deeply.
