Two different approaches to making stories that combine improvisation with the recording studio. Total Transparency is a brand new piece, it was completely improvised and recorded in one take, and then edited. It was made up on the spot by Chet Siegel, Ed Herbstman, and Louis Kornfeld. Eye Contact was made using lots of different people telling the same story, that was edited into a fractured monologue. It originally aired in 2006 on Weekend America.

As we finish up some new stories for the podcast, here's a selection of three short pieces from the archives. These pieces are a little different than the stories we normally present on The Truth. They were all made by taking different characters from different movies or tv shows, and editing them together so it sounds like they're talking to one another. Included in this podcast: Terminally Blonde (2003), Sopranos in the West Wing (2004), and Buster and Spongebob in Love (2005).
