We're working on a new version of PRX. Want a sneak peek?

The Truth

GroupAccount image

THE TRUTH is fiction -- we make short films without pictures. We call them "movies for your ears." We're a contemporary re-imagining of what audio drama is and can be, presented as a regular podcast. 


We develop our stories as a collective, bringing together improvising actors who love using sound to tell new, original stories. We record on location, and then take those recordings into the studio to edit them and add sound design. The result sounds kind of like a movie, only the pictures are all in your imagination. Our dramatic fiction has been heard on many nationally-syndicated public radio programs, including This American Life, Studio 360, Snap Judgment, Weekend America, and The Story.
