Animated Stories: Lynn Ferguson - the Moth Radio Hour

Lynn Ferguson and 'Mac' the chicken*

So back in September 2013, Lynn Ferguson gave a talk for the Moth Radio Hour and it was just added to their website last week. In this particular talk, Lynn relates a story about her experience of getting pregnant for the first time at the age of 37. What does this have to do with animation? Well, once you hear that rich scots burr, you'll recognize Lynn as the voice of brainy, bespectacled chicken 'Mac' from Aardman Animations' film "Chicken Run". Hers is not a story about animation per se, but it's a great story nonetheless told by a master storyteller and performer.
