Rumor Flies started from (sort of) one question:

How do certain "facts," true or otherwise, become so publicly accepted and repeated?

Our podcast comically addresses the origins, evolution, and veracity of your favorite rumors, myths, and misconceptions. We are three friends in New Orleans who love researching and opening our responses with, "Actually..."

We work hard, research harder, and answer the questions that plague our souls everyday. Did coca-cola ever have cocaine in it? Does Disney have secret subliminal - often lewd - images in their animated films? Did that kid in elementary school actually have the super secret early Japanese release of Nintendo 64 because his dad worked for them? You get the idea.

We check the source, we hunt for documentation, and occasionally, we will even add supplemental content that ranges from incredibly relevant to "I think these guys really just wanted to cook for an hour on camera.

Lastly: Patreon is an amazing platform. Through it we get to join an amazing community of content creators and fans across the world. This platform will help us keep the lights on, increase our production value, and add even more content! We would love you to have you on board. 

Please consider supporting us today - thank you all so much!

*Note: We will not collect donations for the between-season episodes! All donations will be directed towards the "main" show.
