“Based On A True Story picks up where Hollywood left off, examining the actual history behind movies that claim to be “based on a true story”. It’s a fascinating premise for a podcast, and host Dan LeFebvre does not disappoint, masterfully guiding listeners, scene by scene, through some of the silver screen’s best-known films to see how they match up with the historical record. In the Titanic episode, we learn what director James Cameron got right, and which historical details were subject to artistic license. This well-researched show will enthrall movie lovers and history buffs alike.”
–The Most Wonderful Wonder Podcast
“The concept of this podcast is inspired: researching and presenting the true history of stories that Hollywood has adapted for the screen. And it’s well-researched, down to the minutiae, introducing listeners to the true stories that many probably thought they already knew well because of the films that used them as a premise. The show has strong production quality, nice mood-building ambient background music and a host with confident, enthusiastic delivery.”
