Mtn. Talk: Behind The Scenes at The Moth
In this episode we’re learning about The Moth: a live storytelling series that will be here at Appalshop on Thursday May 10th! First, director Jenifer Hixson joins WMMT’s Rachel Garringer on the phone to talk about some history and behind the scenes details of how The Moth works: including the story of it’s founding on a screened in porch in Georgia, the story-coaching process, and how to pitch your own story to The Moth for consideration at one of their live shows! And then, we hear two Moth stories recorded at live shows across the country. The first features Dame Wilburn who will MC the Moth event here at Appalshop, and in the second Wilburn introduces Australian comedian Jon Bennett.
