Ian McGregor weaves an incredible yarn in this week’s edition of MOTH Monday, a partnership with Good News Network, that features videos from the nonprofit group, The MOTH, showcasing the art of storytelling.
As a tour guide for 10-year-olds hiking the National Parks, Ian McGregor has become a master of storytelling—from whispering scary stories around the campfire to inventing a ‘moose song’ that became a lifesaver when things became ‘real-life scary’.
The one thing he never told the kids in Yellowstone National Park, was one of the scariest stories of his life—he was slowly going blind from a disorder that had no cure.
But, the kids taught him an amazing lesson because when the natural world got frightening, they had his back.
Funny, charming, and witty, this story—which was originally recorded on the #MothMainstage in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 2016—catapults the scary ending for something much more inspirational and refreshing.

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.
