Every year, the storytelling live show and podcast 5 Truths and a Lie travels to Atlanta for the genre mecca that is Dragon Con. This year the show boasted another Standing Room Only show that featured storytellers from Wynonna Earp, The Magicians, The Flash and Sex Criminals

5 Truths and a Lie regularly presents their show live in Los Angeles to a small audience. The show is recorded and released as a podcast. What makes Dragon Con so exciting is the increased number audience members which adds a palpable electricity to the air. In addition, since Dragon Con is a pop culture convention and 5TL always comes through with amazing genre guests from different areas of fandom to tell true stories from their lives!

Well, kind of tell true stories.

You see, here’s the thing. 5 Truths and a Lie is a storytelling show that asks guests to tell a story from their lives based on a theme. The catch is, one of the storytellers is lying. The audience’s job is guess who the liar is. What ensues is a raucous and hilarious hour of storytelling where all bets are off and it seems like everyone is lying. This year’s stories were awesomely crazy, so crazy in fact, that we have to give the show an R rating, so definitely NSFW. 

For Dragon Con 2017, our storytelling theme was, May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor: Stories of taking risks and rolling the dice. The amazing line-up was,

Katherine Barrell (Wynonna Earp, Star Trek: Discovery)
Matt Fraction (Hawkeye, Sex Criminals)
Deric Hughes (The Flash, Warehouse 13, Beauty and the Beast)
Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Wynonna Earp, Avengers: Age of Ultron)
Rick Worthy (Battlestar Galactica, The Magicians)

For this podcast, 5TL hosts and producers Audrey Kearns and Brian Bradley enlisted the help of writer Josh Flaum (Written by a Kid, Nerdist). Audrey, Brian and 5TL producer Matt Soule played the Dragon Con 2017 stories for Josh and listened to him reason who he thinks the liar is. Now it’s your turn! Join Josh and figure out who the truth-sayers are and who the lying liar is!
