About Dan LeFebvre

Thank you for taking being here and thinking about supporting Based on a True Story!

Here's a few things to know about supporting Based on a True Story:
  • Based on a True Story is made by just one person. It's just me (Dan LeFebvre) writing, researching, recording, and editing.
  • Each episode takes about 25 hours to create from start to finish. That doesn't include all the other podcast-related tasks outside creating an episode (marketing, website maintenance, writing this description on Patreon right now, etc.). This is a full-time job.
  • Based on a True Story helps me put food on the table for my family, so your support helps me keep the podcast alive.

As a way of saying "thank you", when you support Based on a True Story you'll get access to over 20 hours of exclusive content immediately. That includes over 40 minisodes that dive into the way completely fictional movies depict history.

For example, a few movies covered in exclusive minisodes include:
  • The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
  • The Princess Bride
  • Independence Day
  • The Matrix
  • Jurassic Park
  • Back to the Future
Thank you again for taking the time to listen to the podcast and consider supporting the show. You are awesome!
