In this season of Unfictional, Stories of Transformation, and the ways in which the world — and all of us — have fundamentally changed since the pandemic began. One man watched his children suddenly turn into grown-ups, while another upended every part of his life. Someone else had to learn to live with hardship and found their true identity along the way, all while living in two worlds. Meanwhile, a subculture ascends, one reporter explores Olvera Street, and another finds an old notebook filled with memories from his time in a cabin. It’s UnFictional, hosted by Bob Carlson.
UnFictional is a show full of stories that grab you and keep you – that stick in your head like a memory. Dream alongside a soul far away: soldiers and criminals, adventurers and hustlers, the saved and the damned. Everybody has an inner life.
The award-winning show is created in collaboration with the best independent audio documentary makers and storytellers from around the world, who are always looking for new ways to tell stories with sound. It’s produced by host and producer Bob Carlson, editor Nick White, and managing producer Carla Green.
We’ll take you on a journey through the thoughts and lives of people near and far, far away – if you let us.
