Over the last four and half years Story Slam Dayton has welcomed more than 100 storytellers to the stage. A few have found themselves on bigger stages in bigger cities telling stories for The Moth. The Moth hosts open mic storytelling events across the US and abroad. Dayton tellers have racked up wins in Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago, Louisville and Ann Arbor.
Perhaps the biggest testimony to Dayton storytellers was the The Moth Mainstage that filled the Victoria Theater in April of 2019. One of the tellers that night was Jackie Andrews. Jackie is a Dayton Story Slam regular and frequent winner of the Dayton open mic events. This weekend The Moth Radio hour will be presenting the April 2019 show in its entirety featuring Jackie’s story.
The Moth airs weekly on Dayton’s very own WYSO. Find it Saturday at 2:00 or Wednesday evening at 11:00. For more details or to find a station near you, visit https://themoth.org/radio-hour/live-from-dayton
