Christal Brown had always had a complex relationship with her father. Since he had been an avid sports fanatic prior to losing his legs in Vietnam, he did not know how to encourage his daughter during her dance recitals.

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.
