Fibletts are mini-episodes of Fact or Fiction that allow you to test your own skills at finding the fiction within the facts! I’ll read four paragraphs, three of which are from an article or related articles and one that is my own invention. It’s up to you to decide which one is the fiction and which ones are the facts! I’ll come clean in two weeks in the next Fiblett edition. If you can’t wait that long, you can find the truth at www.factorfictionpodcast.com or at the Fact or Fiction Facebook page.
Listen carefully, because it’s more difficult than you think to distinguish between fact or fiction.
Thanks for checking here to find the fiction! If you guessed #2: Cold-Blooded Patricide, you were right! That story was my own attempt at creative fiction. The rest of the stories were from the 1892 St. Louis Globe Democrat article, “Fiends in Human Form: Murderers’ Row and Its Nineteen Gory Occupants.” Thanks for listening!
