About the podcast

Dan LeFebvre
Host of Based on a True Story

Based on a True Story is an award-winning podcast that compares what really happened with what we see on screen.

In each episode, we’ll learn about a different movie or TV show that claims to be “based on a true story” and see just how accurate it was. Sometimes they’re pretty close, other times it’s not.

It’s always fun, educational, and a great story that’ll leave you with new trivia knowledge to share with your family and friends.

Fresh episodes are released as they’re created.
