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. Since 2016, we’ve covered hundreds of movies and TV shows. Starting in 2023, we launched BOATS This Week, a weekly series focusing on events from movies and TV shows that happened this week in history.

In each episode, we’ll learn about historical movies or TV shows as we uncover the true story. It’s always fun and educational that’ll leave you with new knowledge to share with your family and friends.
