Starting as an unpaid intern at The Moth when it was still a local storytelling group in New York City, Lea Thau rose up to become the Executive & Creative Director, where she remained for a decade. During her time there, she co-created The Moth Podcast and The Moth Radio Hour, helping to launch the "brand" into a global phenomenon. Thau has since become a Peabody Award-winning producer and director, now hosting her own popular podcast Strangers, which won the 2015 Public Radio March Madness Contest. She is also a storytelling teacher and coach who's worked one-on-one with people like Ethan Hawke, Marc Maron, Gabriel Byrne, Darryll “DMC” McDaniels, Margaret Cho, Suzanne Vega, as well as post-graduate fellows at Harvard, inner-city kids in New York and Los Angeles.
