Beyond the Stage with Tonya Scott Williams - Alvin Hall

“The day I got that letter, I sat in the kitchen of the house and I knew with everything in me that I was going.”

Beyond the Stage with Tonya Scott Williams

A few months ago, we put out a call to listeners to host their own episode of The Moth podcast for its 10th anniversary. Today we're thrilled to pass the mic over to listener Tonya Scott Williams. In this episode, Tonya chooses three of her favorite stories to share.

A successful businessman reveals his childhood dream. An expecting couple rush through an unexpected trip into the night. An online connection leads to a real-world rekindling.

We'll also hear from two other listeners who wrote in that we loved. A special thanks to Larrnell Cross and Brennen Beckwith.

Storytellers: Alvin Hall, Eric Call, and Julie Baker

Hosted by: Tonya Scott Williams
