Making Up the Truth is the new solo show from Peabody Award-winning journalist and This American Life regular Jack Hitt, featuring Hitt's singular wit told through extravagant, almost unbelievable, true tales-from his childhood neighbor's sex change operation, to his NYC apartment super with a deadly secret identity. Making Up the Truth weaves these and other stories together with the latest findings in contemporary brain science as Jack tries to answer the question, "Why do these things always happen to me?" What he discovers is not dry theory but another unbelievable story-this time about all of us and the world of uncanny wonders that lies just beyond our brain's notice.
