True stories about lies (and what comes after)
Journalist (New Yorker, New York Times, Fast Company, Newsweek) and podcaster (homestoriesla.net) Bill Barol is interviewing folks for a new podcast about lies -- Everybody Lies: True stories about lies (and what comes after).

Do you have a great story about about a lie you told, a lie that was told to you or one that was told about you? We want to tell it in a podcast episode of 20-30 minutes. These might be stories of crazy lovers, con-artist roommates or a white lie that chipped away at you for years. The tone can be anything from ridiculous and funny to serious. The lies can be big or small, as long as the small lie ends up leading to a big place. The stories we're looking for are about lies with weight and gravity, ones that have had some consequence in the storyteller’s life.

The stories need to: 1) Be true; 2) Directly involve you; and 3) Have a beginning, middle and end. Ideally, we want an element of surprise. We like stories that start in one place and corkscrew out toward some unexpected conclusion. We'd love to find stories that make us go "Holy crap!” Maybe you've listened to the podcasts Heavyweight, Snap Judgment or live-storytelling like The Moth; think first-person, character-driven stuff like that.
