A few of the stories are entertaining, but the more I listen the more annoyed I become. It's mostly a bunch of ignorant, immature rich kids who think they're clever and funny.

Love this podcast and love the concept

Open mike with a bunch of jerks trying to get laughs from a drunk audience. Not very inciteful at all. Take a pass on this podcast.

Great stories, bad security
Bow-less via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/10/17
I have never listened to the moth so I can't compare. I love this podcast. The contributors are not professional speakers, they are just people sharing stories from their lives. Some are entertaining, some are heart wrenching and others can be a bit rambling. I love all the stories because they...Read full review »

I became quite addicted to this podcast. Of all the podcasts about on-the-spot story-telling, this one is the best. Amazing dtories told by everyday people, showing how everyone lives an extra-ordinary life in some way. I hope that there will be more to come.

Stories are ok, but there is an overuse of those laughs on the background. For example, they are telling a dramatic or sad thing and they still laugh.. No sense
Gab4515mm via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/05/16
I understand the difference between this podcast and The Moth, and the difference is what I don't like about it. Most of these stories are not really stories. Almost without exception, they just trail off because they have no point. It's impossible to tell why the speakers feel compelled to share...Read full review »

These are amateur story tellers telling entertaining stories from their lives. These aren't professional storytellers, but the stories are great. It feels like sitting around a campfire telling stories with friends. The podcast is edited well to make it easy to listen to and very enjoyable.

I definitely recommend! If you love listening to stories, you will love this!
ALGunter123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/15
But sometimes the stories can be a bust.
Caylin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/01/15
Thanks for this fun broadcasting!
Strongfence via Apple Podcasts · South Korea · 08/23/15
As we use true story for learning language and listen to native speakers ,i really love your channel, but there is the noise of a guys who are listening to the story and laugh or should that prevent us listen to the story clearly, i think it is better that let us have a clear voice of who is...Read full review »

Stories are not that interesting. Storytellers are not that good.
h.e.r.b.e.r.t. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/15
Every night I listen to this podcast, before I go to sleep I listen one or two stories; the stories are very interesting because they make me imagine the situation, and I can feel the feelings of the person who is narrating the story
Esteban2209 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/29/15
True Story is one of my favorite podcasts. I also like the variety of stories told.
Jimenezcr USMC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/15
I have listened to every episode. I love the "homely for the holidays" episode. I have shared it and laughed with family and friends. I enjoy these stories!
Emma & Charlie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/15
I know there's a lot of ridicule here about how a majority of the speakers aren't profoundly articulate or have their thoughts together, but I think the "on the spottedness" is what makes these stories feel so real, and what adds to their entertainment value. I've only discovered this podcast...Read full review »

While the stories are short and to the point, one gets the sense that these are real people telling real stories.
WimmerCP via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/10/15
I love the stories, the variety and how quick they are. Fun to binge-listen to. Hope all listeners enjoy!!
samimartin56 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/15
The stories are okay, but there is only one per podcast. I just listened to a six minute story that was okay. Before that, I had to listen to a three minute commercial about the game that they made. Add stories to each podcast or cut the commercials down after the first 15 times you run it, but...Read full review »
DonLance via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/24/15
I used to enjoy it a lot more but many of the stories nowadays are religious which doesn't interest me as much as the old ones used to but still a good podcast to fall asleep to.
Tttddhj via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/13/15
They could really use editors or at least a depth of better material to choose from. A few of the episodes are great! But so many are filled with such rambling "likes" and "ums" and giggles that it's not fun to listen to. Cool idea but the execution can be off putting by how unprofessional and...Read full review »

We’ve been listening to this over breakfast. Something so different for the kids (10 and 12) that they could enjoy and learn the value of a true and simple story
mum via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 03/29/15
Really joyous podcast with beautiful storys, but please please please get rid of the "Next Time" crap at the end, takes all of the fun out of the wait and ruins the current episode

So relaxing and get feel good stories
CalmTiger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/15
I found this charming little podcast last week, and I have to say I'm hooked. In moments where I'm usually distracted I find myself stopping, unable to draw myself away from the stories. True Story is a really enjoyable, truthful, creative podcast. It makes me wish I had the gift of story...Read full review »

this is the most fantastic podcast Ive ever had the pleasure of subscribing to. I can’t remember how I came across it but I so thankful I did and you should definitely make the time it.
Soundpowered via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/14/14
Great to just hear regular people telling true stories. Not too doctored up or rehearsed sounding.
Kevdav123456789 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/21/14
I want to give this a better rating, but often times as I'm listening I cringe as the shy awkward storytellers tell their stories that are not funny (but they uncomfortably giggle nonstop throughout), and then the story ends and I've yet to see the point of the story (not interesting OR funny)...Read full review »

I love listening to these stories. They're so light-hearted, entertaining, funny, though sometime serious, but always soothing to hear :) 5 stars all the way!!!
MissAjayG via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/26/14
I've been a great fan of The Moth podcast for many years, and still am, but one show a week is not enough for me. This is the first podcast I have found that is just as good and satisfies my desire to hear true stories of others lives, whether it is happy or sad, pointless or meaningful, just as...Read full review »

Soooo good I absolutely love it. I also listen to This American Life but actually prefer this to listen to on a day to day basis since they are such a nice length. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Fishydasoup via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/14
I'm loving this podcast. Excited to have a new one I love in the mix!
thisisbeautiful via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/14
The first hand accounts of stories are always the best. And these stories usually don't end up the way I think they will. Entertaining to listen to other peoples perspectives during the stories.
Dcell70 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/09/14
I listen to so many podcasts, the list is endless! By far, "true stories" is one of my favorites..! The stories are entertaining, some with great humor, and after each one podcast I feel like I've walked in that persons shoe for a little bit. They're short, usually around 10 minutes each. Anyway,...Read full review »

I really like that there are no commercials and it starts right away with the stories. I also listen to Moth but get a little frustrated with all the commercials.

An fun and authentic storytelling podcast - certainly worth subscribing to! :)
grapefruit_luver95 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/25/13
I love good story tellers. They do not have to be polished, but they must be compelling. I have only listened to a handful but I'm already so irritated that I dropped everything to write about my disappointment here.
Velveteenie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/13
I really want to love this podcast. Some stories are entertaining, however the performers are unpolished and often come off incredibly pompous and aloof. They have never heard anything funnier than their own story.
Emag5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/11/13
Great little stories! keep it up!
Cookie bomb via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 09/09/13
Love the realness of the stories and the laughs
Verah1011 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/16/13
I really enjoy listening to this podcast. The variety of stories is fantastic and keeps me interested throughout. I wish they would post more, I just finished listening to them all and now I am not sure what to listen to next. Keep on uploading! Definitely recommend this to anyone. ^_^
Pinkberries via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/06/13
Like most people, I too was interested in podcasts like these due to the moth, snap judgment, and this American life. But this podcast stands out and on it's own for being that raw form of story telling. The storytellers are able to share there stories in a more intimate setting amongst their...Read full review »

This kind of podcast is what I was looking for when I originally subscribed to the Moth and Snap Judgment. What people need to understand is that on those other podcasts, you are dealing with *professional* story tellers whose job it is to dress up stories and tell them with a neat beginning,...Read full review »
Smith1622 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/13
While well-produced, and in theory a reasonable concept, where True Story falls short is in the actual storytelling itself. I've listened to three episodes now and in each of them I have been quite frustrated with the speaker to the point that I see no reason to keep going with this series. One...Read full review »
