LOVE

I love The Truth and I’m so sad that they had to stop making it. Such a good show

vecna is my bestie ,

I’m crying myself to sleep every night now.

Hi…so I have been obsessed with the truth for about two years. My dad introduced the show to me, and I’m sure glad he did (THANK YOU DAD) Ok, let me get one thing straight… this is such a good podcast. Although they are done making episodes, I will still re-listen over and over till the day I die. This podcast is a friend and an enemy to me. I’ve laughed, cried, raged, and nearly peed my pants because I was either scared or laughing my butt off. I truly feel as if I’m there in the story, I have personal issues with some of the characters. Sometimes I actually want to punch the car radio, and me and my dad yell at the speaker because we are so invested in the plot.😂

radiotopia😇 THE TRUTH👹

Socks & sandles ,

Good listen

The production is great and the stories are well written. Great show.
