About This Show
Everybody lies. Some are terrible at it, some do it frighteningly well. Sooner or later, most of us get caught.
This is the story of the lies we tell, and what happens when they crumble. This is Liar City.

Legitimately love this show. Hoaxes and public lies are fascinating in general, so a podcast that gets to the bottom of some of the biggest and best is long overdue. Kudos on the original concept and solid execution.

Very good concept, I enjoy many of the stories
I have mixed opinions about this podcast. On one hand, I can't think of a single podcast that has a similar premise and provides similar content. It's very unique! I can't think of an episode that I'd consider worse than "okay", and I'd feel comfortable recommending this to folks. Top faves are the Satanic Panic episodes and the Billy Collins episode. However, the intros from the hosts are getting longer and longer. Brian just kind of drones on and on. And with Darien and Bren just playing the roles of Yes Men, it gets boring. I understand why a podcast would add in anecdotes to an opening, but really they all have the same script:
Brian: *Says anything*
Darien: Haha, yeah.
Brian: *Continues original thought.*
Etc. It makes a 3 minute anecdote into 10 minutes, and it's filler I don't need. Having several hosts is great for chemistry and keeping the podcast flowing, but when two are just sockpuppets for the one, it's boring.
Keep in mind that this is my only complaint. And that fast forwarding is possible. But, ya know! Anyway, give it a listen.
