Today is MOTH Monday on Good News Network: In partnership with The Moth, a nonprofit dedicated to the art of storytelling, we bring you the most uplifting speakers from live stages across the world.
Kevin McAuliffe was terrified of germs – so imagine how anxious he became when his parents told him they were sending him to New York City to spend the weekend with his older brother.
Despite his trepidation over visiting the “place where germs are born”, McAuliffe didn’t want to disappoint his parents; so he packed his bags and boarded the train.

The Moth gives people an opportunity to tell a true story in front of a live audience, and sometimes their stories are chosen to air on the radio show, now celebrating its tenth year, and broadcasting on 485+ public radio stations—and on The Moth podcast, which is downloaded over 52 million times a year.
The Moth’s third book, Occasional Magic: True Stories About Defying the Impossible is now available for purchase through your favorite booksellers.
