On this episode, a woman decides a stranger is in need of help, whether the stranger wants it or not, and a store clerk sets out to capture a shoplifter.... These stories were the result of a collaboration between KCRW's Strangers and the live storytelling organization The Moth, which was run for many years by Strangers creator/producer/host, Lea Thau. The Moth produces live storytelling shows and holds ongoing storytelling competitions in multiple cities. On July 23, The Moth held a Los Angeles GrandSLAM where winners of previous StorySLAMs duked it out for the Championship title on the theme of "strangers." Jessica Lee Williamson and Brian Brown were the two top contestants. Tune in to hear who won.
