Why Professor Says There Can Be ‘Good News and Bad News’ With Computer Crash Erasing Student’s Work

Today is MOTH Monday on Good News Network: In partnership with The Moth, a nonprofit dedicated to the art of storytelling, we bring you the most uplifting speakers from live stages across the world.

This college professor knows how students often tend to wait until the last minute to finish their school papers.

She also knows that in the age of technology, if a computer crashes at the last minute, all the last-minute work could be lost in an instant, leaving the student with an epic excuse for missing a deadline.

Though she admits that she is generally pretty harsh on her students and their excuses, Catherine Palmer tells a live audience at The Moth about what happened when she, herself, lost a research paper after her computer’s catastrophic failure—and says there was bad news and good news.

Listen to her inspiring story below…

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.
