True Story is creating a storytelling podcast

Thank you for supporting the stories you love!

Our vision is to enable people in communities around the planet to host and record their own storytelling parties — to gather, listen, and laugh together. 

We offer the True Story podcast as the voice and vehicle for that global community, publishing the world's true stories for all of us to enjoy.

We work closely with True Story hosts, creating guides and other resources for organizing events. With your patronage, we dream of supporting our hosts even more: lending out recording equipment, offering cash prizes for published stories, and more.

How can I help?

Easy! Click the orange button above-left to join the league of our Esteemed Patrons who make this project possible.

Choose an amount that fits your budget and you'll give us a 'tip' of that size every time we release a new episode (typically twice per month). You can also set a maximum per-month amount — even if you set your monthly max at $1 we will be stoked about it.

To show our sincere appreciation for your support, we're excited to offer the perks and rewards below. Thank you so much!
