We've all seen the movies that claim to be 'based on a true story', but have you ever wondered how historically accurate they are? That's what we'll aim to find out as we compare Hollywood with history.

Most underrated podcast out there

I listen to a lot of podcasts every week, and this one is my favorite. It's very well researched and well executed. Even if you haven't seen the movie discussed in the episode you still hear a great story with plenty of interesting information. New episodes are posted early every Monday morning and it's always the first podcast I check for to start my week.

Great Insight into Popular Movies

I really enjoy this podcast each week. While it's obvious that Hollywood takes a few liberties - sometimes more than a few - with the truth when adapting a real story to the big screen, it's interesting to hear where fact deviates from fiction as the plot rolls along.

In some cases, such as 'The Hunt for Red October,' I wasn't even aware there was a basis in fact. In others, such as 'The Sound of Music' or 'Free State of Jones,' it was cool to hear the factual details behind the tale.

Overall, it's an enjoyable show. I'll keep listening since Tinseltown keeps cranking out movies with a basis in real life.

Truth behind the fiction? Great Podcast!

Here's a great podcast that contains my top 3 criteria for grabbing my ears: It's well produced, well researched and highly entertaining. Want to peal back the veil on the stories you think you know? Start here! [Steve - Drift and Ramble Podcast]
