About The Moth Pop Up Porch

Inspired by The Moth's origin—stories shared on warm nights in Georgia as moths flocked towards the porch light and the stories—The Moth is celebrating its 25th anniversary by launching its first-ever Pop Up Porch Tour, in collaboration with General Motors. This Fall, The Moth will drive a tiny home complete with a big porch—towed by a Chevrolet Silverado HD—in search of you and your stories!

Across The Pop Up Porch Tour, we aim to uncover new stories that we may then bring to The Moth Mainstage, The Moth Radio Hour, The Moth Podcast, and beyond.
