The Truth podcast
Movies for your ears
Jonathan Mitchell, host and producer of The Truth on the Radiotopia podcast network, is known for creating “movies for your ears.” In this hour, he and writer/producers Diana McCorry and Louis Kornfield take us on an immersive performance that blends theater, interactive sound, and freeform radio—exploring how the truth is always more complicated than any first listen. In an emotional segment, follow Diana as she leads us through one of The Truth’s first narratives—an exploration of age, mental illness, and the sub-conscience.
Jonathan Mitchell is a triple threat of writer, director, and producer, whose work has ranged from documentary shorts, fictional stories, non-narrated sound collages, and original music. His work has appeared on RadioLab, Studio 360, This American Life, Hearing Voices, Fair Game, The Next Big Thing, and PBS’s Nova, and he has been the recipient of the Peabody Award, The Sarah Lawrence College International Audio Fiction Award, and the Gold Mark Time Award for Best Science Fiction Audio.
Louis Kornfield is a teacher and ensemble member at NYC's Magnet Theater, who regularly performs with improv team The Boss as part of Thursday Night Out, as well as Theory of Everything and MegaLou.
