RATING
Great writing and acting. Nice music and FX. Films for your ears! Really love every episode, no matter the genre. Best short story podcast. Love it!
This is a collection of fantastic short fiction. I enjoyed each story that I've heard on this podcast. They are short enough to binge or to use a bed time story. I'll double your money back if you do not enjoy this podcast.
There are so many terrible and amateurish audio dramas out there that it is always a relief to listen to someone who knows what he is doing. Even if The Truth doesn't always hit the heights of true art, you listen to this show, having faith that it will at some point. You can trust in The Truth. "The Dark End of the Mall." "Nuclear Winter." "That's Democracy." More than most audio dramas could summon at their finest hour.
Jonathan Mitchell's terrific work on THE TRUTH often gets taken for granted. I'll make no bones about it. Listening to this show very closely was one of the ways I learned how to produce audio drama. There is great care to sound effects and atmosphere and, above all, a sense of realism -- even with many of the wacky BLACK MIRROR-style premises. This makes sense, given that this show does have its creative origins and sustains collaborative associations with those in improv. "Fish Girl," in particular, is a wonderful gem -- particularly the way in which this story somehow merges the grounding in reality with the outlandish nature of the concept. As someone who writes and produces a lot of wacky tales, I assure you that this is not easy.
Just started listening! It's very entertaining and very well edited! Excited to keep listening.
Unique, imaginative stories with a fresh perspective
Stunningly produced, mixed, and edited, The Truth is the benchmark of the short-story audio drama field
Incredible production and each episode so different. Only 100 episodes more to binge :-)
All unconnected stories. Some were really cool. Most weren't.
I loved the old tagline: "Movies for your ears." Always original stories, well acted, not over produced, and thoughtful. High recommended.
Absolutely fantastic fiction podcast. The audio quality is top-notch, and the acting is so good. I've never heard a single bad actor on that show, and I'm quite sensitive to that. The stories are really intriguing and well-done. Check out "Can You Help Me Find My Mom?" for a completely realistic story that seems impossible until you figure out something crucial.
An excellent anthology audio drama series with some highly thought provoking episode and mini series.
My cup of tea
Every story has an unexpected angle that sometimes leave you laughing, surprised or scared. You never know what's coming, and that's the beauty of it. The writing is simply outstanding and the stories are played by some exceptionally gifted actors. The sound is obviously perfect. Jonathan Mitchell has a rare gift for writing wonderful and enigmatic stories and you should really not miss out on this.
Great fiction podcast. Each episode is a different story.
