May 26, 2020  – June 1, 2020  Episode “How You See Me.”

My story: “Into the Light”  taped during a live Moth StorySLAM show at Oberon in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Airing on more than 500 radio stations, with over one million listeners, The Moth Radio Hour features beloved stories from live shows around the world and behind-the-scenes commentary from our artistic team.

My story, “Into the Light,” is based on the story I published in the anthology, “The Moment,” edited by Larry Smith of Six Word Memoir fame. Many of my stories, plays and films focus on how other people’s vision of us affects our version of ourselves that we see.
