It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story &ndash; and The Moth&rsquo;s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.</p><p>Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.</p><p>Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.</p><p>Moth stories dissolve socio-economic barriers, expose vulnerabilities, and quietly suggest ways to overcome challenges and see with new eyes.</p><p><strong><a href="https://themoth.secure.force.com/ticket/#sections_a0FU000000BEtbFMAT">Go here to purchase tickets in advance.</a></strong></p></p> Tue, 02 Jun 2015 07:39:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/moth-story-slam-112124 WBEZ Member Meet-up: I <3 Chicago Politics http://www.wbez.org/wbez-member-meet-i-111506 <p><p data-mce-style="text-align: left;" style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.6em;"><em data-mce-style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 1.6em;" style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 1.6em;"><strong>Don&rsquo;t have a date for Valentine&rsquo;s Day?</strong></em><span data-mce-style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 1.6em;" style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 1.6em;">&nbsp;Get ahead of the game and guarantee your spot in a room full of political nerds.&nbsp;</span><span data-mce-style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;" style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 20.7999992370605px;">Politically minded WBEZ members are invited to a special live event celebrating your love of Chicago politics.</span></p><p style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.6em;"><span data-mce-style="color: #ff0000;" style="color: rgb(255, 0, 0);"><strong><span data-mce-style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 1.6em;" style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium; line-height: 1.6em;">Note: This event is not just for single people, but you should be interested in beer and/or politics to fully enjoy.</span></strong></span></p><p style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.6em; text-align: center;"><strong style="line-height: 20.7999992370605px; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 16px;"><span style="font-family: verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">To register, visit&nbsp;</span><a href="http://iheartchipolitics.eventbrite.com">http://iheartchipolitics.eventbrite.com</a>!</span></span></strong></p><div class="image-insert-image " style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" class="image-original_image" src="http://www.wbez.org/system/files/styles/original_image/llo/insert-images/logo_0.png" title="" /></div><p style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.6em;"><span data-mce-style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium;" style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium;">WBEZ reporters&nbsp;<a data-mce-="" href="http://www.wbez.org/users/lchooljian-0" title="Lauren Chooljian"><strong>Lauren Chooljian</strong></a>&nbsp;and<a data-mce-="" href="http://www.wbez.org/users/tarnold-0" title="Tony Arnold"><strong>&nbsp;Tony Arnold</strong></a>&nbsp;will guide you through an evening of games and performances that are designed to leave you more informed about the Chicago political process (without taking it too seriously).&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span data-mce-style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium;" style="font-family: verdana, geneva; font-size: medium;">You&rsquo;ll start by hearing local political experts like Neil Steinberg, Kitty Kurth, Kevin Lampe and Richard Steele share stories on why they &ldquo;heart&rdquo; Chicago politics.
